The RSPCA Cairns Animal Care Centre, located in Far North Queensland, is a vital part of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Queensland (RSPCA Qld). As a non-government, registered charity, RSPCA Qld relies on the generosity of the community to fund 96% of its essential work. The centre’s mission is simple yet powerful: Together We Change Lives.

The boarding facilities operate seven days a week, catering to both dogs and cats of all sizes. Additionally, the centre’s call centre is open for animal rescue and welfare complaints, emphasizing its commitment to animal well-being and safety.
