RSPCA Awards

RSPCA Awards

Throughout history, animals have shown great courage - and made great sacrifices - in the defence and service of their human companions.

Likewise, there are many occasions where people have placed their own safety and welfare at risk, in order to protect or help an animal in need.

The RSPCA believes that celebrating the extraordinary bonds shared between animals and humankind, we contribute to a greater appreciation of the role animals play in our lives.

RSPCA Australia recognises these achievements through three separate national awards program.
