Who Are We
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Queensland (RSPCA Qld) is the state’s oldest, largest and leading animal welfare charity, dedicated to improving the lives of all domestic, farmed and native animals throughout Queensland.
We are the leading animal welfare charity in Queensland, currently rehoming more animals than any other organisation in the Southern Hemisphere. As a non-government, community based charity, we are the only charity with the power to prosecute animal cruelty and neglect. We care for displaced domestic pets as well as native wildlife patients in our Brisbane RSPCA Wildlife Hospital.
Each year over 56,000 animals need assistance from the RSPCA. RSPCA Qld requires $51 million annually to support our animal centres, programs and services. RSPCA Qld, a community based charity receives less than 4% of funding from the government and relies on donations, bequests and sponsorships from ordinary Queenslanders, just like you.
What to Expect
Above all else, at RSPCA Qld our focus is on saving lives. Our centres throughout Queensland are where we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome.
For the 56,015 animals that arrived at an RSPCA Queensland centre over the past year, it was a second chance at life.
Our commitment to saving lives can be found everywhere at the RSPCA. “Have I done everything reasonable to save this animal?” can be found near offices, on our software and as part of the landscape. Saving lives is a way of life and one that the staff and volunteers are committed to.
For the year of 2014/2015 our live release rate finished as 85%, compared to 83% for the year prior. Today, it sits at 90% for dogs and 91% for cats for the 2017/2018 year (as of 15 March 2018).
