Since October 2005, the RSPCA, Bendigo Bank and VISA have worked together to create a fun and exciting range of credit cards that offer Australians a way to support the RSPCA. Every time Bendigo RSPCA Rescue VISA cardholders use their card to make a purchase or pay a bill, they are helping homeless animals find new families.
So far, Bendigo RSPCA Rescue VISA card holders have raised more than $1.5 million for the RSPCA’s Adoptapet program, helping to rehome more than 200,000 animals across Australia.
Bendigo Bank has on offer five card designs to choose from when you sign up for a Bendigo RSPCA Rescue VISA card. You can have one of four card designs that feature the story of real animals helped through the Adoptapet program – a great reminder of why your support is so important. Now you also have the option to create your own card with your favourite pet photo with the new Personalise My Card service.
Introducing RSPCA stars, Mickey, Buddy, Minnie or Zeplin, who all found new homes through the Adoptapet program and feature on Bendigo RSPCA Rescue VISA cards.
Buddy is a three year old male wire haired Jack Russell cross who was surrendered to the RSPCA Yagoona Shelter due to the owner no longer being able to care for him. Buddy is a very energetic friendly boy with a big personality. He proved very popular at the shelter and was adopted by a loving new owner less than a month after arriving at the RSPCA.
Minnie is a female domestic short hair cat. Minnie was handed into the RSPCA Yagoona Shelter as a stray, along with her litter mates. She was placed into foster care, until she was healthy and old enough to go up for adoption. Minnie found her forever home and is living happily with her new family.
Zeplin is a special little male cross puppy who needed to go to only the most loving of homes. His mum originally came into the shelter as a stray that was heavily pregnant. She gave birth to a very big litter of eight pups and Zeplin was raised by his mum and the shelter staff until he was adopted and is now enjoying life with his forever family.
Mickey is a six year old very friendly and social male Boxer x Labrador, originally purchased from a pet shop and surrendered to the RSPCA Yagoona Shelter. Mickey was surrendered to the RSPCA because his owners were moving to a rented townhouse and their landlord would not allow them to keep a dog. With the help of the RSPCA Mickey found his forever home and is living it up with his new family.
