Whether an animal has been surrendered, neglected, abandoned, lost, is unwanted, sick or injured, our centres throughout Queensland provide all creatures great and small a safe and comfortable place to stay while they receive the care and attention they need, and deserve.

At RSPCA Qld, we have close working relationships with councils, rescue groups and other welfare organisations, which positions us to give even more animals a second chance of finding a forever home, and to re-unite even more lost animals with their owners.

Over the past year, RSPCA Qld provided over 1 million animal care days. If you start to look at the number of meals, the amount of laundry, the number of walks - it is truly amazing the time that has been given by over 250 staff and over 5,000 volunteers, foster carers, rescue groups and wildlife carers.
