If you would like to make a donation to the Queensland Flood Crisis Appeal please do so online, by phoning the RSPCA yourself or by post. The RSPCA is not using telemarketers to raise money for the floods so please be careful if you receive any calls from someone claiming to represent the RSPCA.
We have had some concerning calls from members of the public who say they have been phoned by people claiming to be the RSPCA asking for cash donations.
The RSPCA in some states does use telemarketers to fundraise by selling products such as raffle tickets, tea towels and diaries however; we do not solicit cash donations from people over the phone.

The RSPCA relies on the community for 97% of our national funding. Please don't let these few bad seeds turn you off helping us - just make sure you do it securely.
