CARING IS A COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITY
RSPCA Queensland Australia is the state’s oldest, largest and leading animal welfare charity. It is an organisation which remains almost entirely community funded. Each year it relies on everyday Queenslanders to help raise 99% of the $45 million required to keep operations going.
RSPCA Queensland also has an extensive link to the community. The organisation remains dedicated to improving the welfare of all domestic, farmed and wild animals throughout Queensland.
Last year alone RSPCA Queensland managed the following:
• 50,342 animals came through the doors in Queensland
• 18,499 cruelty and neglect complaints were handled
• The centres were supported by 5,000+ volunteers across Queensland
Los angeles Animal Services
LA Animal Services is one of the largest municipal shelter systems in the United States with six shelters serving approximately 60,000 animals annually and responding to 20,000 emergency calls involving an animal or person in danger.
Allows cats and dogs to go home with temporary 'foster' parents to alleviate overcrowding in the shelter. Bottle Baby fosters take home nursing kitties and puppies who have been abandoned without a mother, the foster parents raise them until they are 8 weeks.
Volunteering is a great way to do life saving work with our animals, volunteers work side by side with staff to care for and help find homes for animals in our shelters.
