An update on our Bushfire Recovery Fund

During the devastating bushfire crisis of 2019-2020, thousands of Australians generously supported the RSPCA to help protect animals impacted by emergencies like this.

Much of these funds have already been used to deliver urgent services for animals on the ground; but equally, we have always been very mindful that our work will continue for many months and years to come, to keep caring for and protecting animals well into the future.

We’re now pleased to announce the RSPCA is funding the delivery of a number of important initiatives specific to the 2019-2020 bushfires in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and the ACT, with a focus on native animals.

These projects will protect Australian animals now and into the future – whether it’s upgrading wildlife care facilities, creating specific capabilities to rescue, triage and treat animals affected by bushfires, or working collaboratively with other partners to help address the needs and gaps we’ve identified.

All in all, thanks to the generous contributions of the community as well as our national and international corporate partners - we have around $6 million to allocate these vital projects. 

Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be sharing the specific details of these projects as well as keeping you up-to-date with progress and the latest news. But for now – it’s a big thank you to all of our supporters from us here at the RSPCA. We have the chance to not just help animals on the ground today but protect many more Australian animals into the future.
