The RSPCA Queensland call centre responded to a whopping 403,674 calls, emails and sms. Our Animal Ambulances attended over 30,000 requests about sick and injured wildlife and domestic pets across the state.
Over 5,500 volunteers across Queensland contributed 536,000 hours of their time to our cause in a range of different roles. We couldn’t operate without them!
Our Wildlife Hospitals have seen over 25,000 native animals needing care. Every year we are seeing more and more wild animals needing RSPCA care.
Over 7,000 pets were placed in temporary foster homes thanks to members of the public signing up to become an RSPCA foster carer. Foster carers are amazing! Pets need help from foster parents year-round for a range of reasons some include: pups and kittens waiting to get to the right weight before desexing, farm animals that need extra space on acreage, animals that aren’t coping with shelter life, pets that require temporary homes while cruelty investigations are underway, and more!
