The RSPCA NSW Blue Mountains Shelter, located in North Katoomba, is a vital animal holding facility for the Blue Mountains City Council. As part of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals; New South Wales (RSPCA NSW), this not-for-profit organization is dedicated to caring for, treating, protecting, and rehoming animals across the state. The shelter ensures that no animal is turned away or forgotten, providing a safe haven for abandoned, neglected, injured, or surrendered animals.

RSPCA NSW operates five shelters, two rehabilitation centers, and three veterinary hospitals, all committed to treating, rehabilitating, and rehoming animals in need. In addition to cats and dogs, the shelter assists a variety of animals, including horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, goats, and sheep. The organization also offers support to owners in need, providing guidance and assistance related to various issues such as domestic violence, aged care, homelessness, and mental health.

With a strong focus on animal welfare education and community empowerment, RSPCA NSW aims to prevent cruelty to animals and promote humane treatment. The organization’s Inspectorate, the largest animal enforcement unit in the state, investigates cases of alleged animal cruelty, ensuring that animals receive the protection and care they deserve. Through fundraising events, volunteer branches, and educational programs, RSPCA NSW continues to make a difference in the lives of animals and the community at large.
