The state and territory member Societies provide services to animals in need through their shelters and inspectorates. In the national office, RSPCA Australia works to influence animal welfare policy, practice and legislation across the country
Here you'll find the latest news relating to the RSPCA's vital work, press releases on national events, education on animal welfare issues, animal welfare science updates and our very own podcast covering a range of current topics.
Every year, the RSPCA provides shelter to thousands of animals in need of a good home.
By choosing adoption, you’ll not only have the chance to make a friend for life, but you’ll be giving an animal a second chance and helping support the RSPCA.
The Adoptapet website lets you view the many wonderful pets waiting for adoption at RSPCA locations across Australia. All animals have been health and behaviour assessed by the RSPCA and are ready for their new homes. Dogs and cats are also desexed, microchipped and vaccinated to help give them the best possible fresh start.
Before you begin your search, consider your needs and the needs of your future pet. How much time can you spend on training and exercise? How much space do you have for them? How much can you afford to pay for food, toys, training and possible vet bills?
