RSPCA asks community to dig deep

By Tanayah Wakefield

With thousands of unwanted, neglected, homeless and abused animals currently waiting at RSPCA shelters across the state, the organisation is calling on the community to help find these pets new loving homes by supporting its Give To Get Them Home appeal on October 6.

RSPCA Queensland’s Chief Veterinarian Dr Anne Chester says the 24-hour appeal is an opportunity for Queenslanders to make a difference to the lives of the 47,000 animals who require assistance and intervention from the RSPCA annually.

“The community has always been the backbone of the RSPCA and we rely on the generosity of Queenslanders – no matter how big or small – to help us continue to rescue, rehabilitate, retrain and rehome animals,” Dr Chester says.

“On average, it costs the RSPCA $500 to get an animal ready to find a home – a donation of $46 will provide food for an animal in care, $80 can help cover the cost of a pet’s care for one day, and $120 can help provide specialist surgery to an animal in need.”
