Detailed Information

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Queensland (RSPCA Qld) is the state’s leading animal welfare charity, dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming domestic, farmed, and native animals throughout Queensland. Established in 1883, RSPCA Qld has been a beacon of hope for animals in need for nearly 140 years. As a non-government, community-based charity, RSPCA Qld relies on the generosity of animal lovers to fund 96% of its vital work, including caring for sick, injured, and displaced animals, as well as prosecuting animal cruelty and neglect under the Animal Care and Protection Act (2001).

RSPCA Qld operates 10 Adoption Centres across Queensland, a Wildlife Hospital in Brisbane, and a Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in Eumundi. In addition to these facilities, RSPCA cats are available for adoption at various Pet Barn locations, RSPCA Op Shops, and World for Pets stores. The organization is proud to have Her Excellency the Honourable Dr Jeannette Young AC PSM, Governor of Queensland, as its patron. By making a monthly or single gift, individuals can support RSPCA Qld in its mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome animals every day, with the help of dedicated volunteers who ensure that abused, abandoned, and injured animals receive the care they deserve.

At RSPCA Qld, the commitment to changing lives is unwavering. The organization upholds the highest ethical standards, ensuring that personal information is never sold or traded to other charities or organizations. With a call centre open 24/7 for animal rescue and cruelty complaints, individuals can reach out to RSPCA Qld by calling 1300 ANIMAL (264 625). Those interested in adopting a furry friend can apply online to express their interest and potentially provide a safe and loving home for one of the many animals patiently waiting for a forever family.
