First launched in Victoria last year, the Give to Get Them Home campaign drew unprecedented public support, raising $618,000 dollars in 24 hours
On October 3 every dollar you donate will be QUADRUPLED! You can turn your $25 donation into $100!
"We’re incredibly grateful to some of our most generous donors who have agreed to step up and quadruple every dollar donated,” said RSPCA Qld spokesperson Michael Beatty.” This is an incredible opportunity for Queenslanders to have a real impact on the animals we care for - whether that’s domestic animals or native wildlife.”
Staff and volunteers throughout Queensland will be gathering in Care Centres to call and solicit donations.
“Obviously we’re hoping to match Victoria’s incredible success. That’s our Queensland competitive spirit. Everyone is excited.”
Last year RSPCA Qld received over 17,000 reports of animal cruelty and neglect and over 25,000 native animals, birds and reptiles passed though the wildlife hospital.
“The sheer volume of animals needing help can feel overwhelming,” continued Mr Beatty. “However Give to Get Them Home empowers the public to make a significant- and I mean really significant- impact.”
RSPCA’s across the country rely on community donations for over 90% of their funding. Without the generosity of the public animal welfare throughout Australia would be in crisis mode. On average it costs the RSPCA approximately $1,000 to rescue, care for and find an animal a home. Money raised will go directly to help homeless, neglected and abused animals in the community, and support RSPCA’s animal welfare advocacy and education work.
“If you’ve ever thought about donating to RSPCA – now’s the time to do it.”
