Although we remain committed to looking after all of the animals in our care, from March 27 no animals can be admitted into our care from the public, this includes wildlife.
We know this is a difficult time for everyone, and we appreciate your ongoing support during this ever-evolving COVID-19 crisis.
As we are still caring for animals at the RSPCA during public closures, you can help us stay open by making a donation. We will continue to provide our emergency services and care for animals during this difficult time. Please click here to donate to the RSPCA.
Our priority will always be helping animals in need. As the situation for COVID-19 continues to unfold, we’ll still do everything we can to be there for pets and wildlife. Our animal rescuers in our Animal Ambulances and our Inspectorate will carry on with their vital work. Visit our website daily to continue to access our latest advice. Our 24/7 Animal Emergency Hotline 1300 ANIMAL will remain operating from a virtual platform to answer your calls. We will still also have vets and other animal care staff in our centres to care for animals on site.
As this uncertain situation progresses, we're expecting extra strain to be put on our charity as a whole as our volunteers are unable to work and public visitation to our retail outlets and Adoption Centres is restricted. Sadly, we also expect to lose many of our vital donations as a result of our events being cancelled.
As a charity, we've relied on the generosity of kind supporters to enable us to do the work that we do. Now, more than ever, we need your help. The truth is, without your donations, the long term future for the RSPCA is uncertain. So, if you find yourself saving a little extra petrol money, or have any spare change, please know that by donating, you’re making a world of difference to an animal in need.
