RSPCA Animal Care Campus (SA). A brand new, purpose-built campus, it will house South Australia’s first and only 24/7 Wildlife Hospital and Veterinary Centre.
The campus will be accessible for native fauna rescue groups across the state to bring in injured wildlife for treatment, and will be the central hub for the more than 1,300 community foster care volunteers. The $27m development is expected to double the number of animals RSPCA South Australia cares for each year.
Spanning seven hectares, comprising the wildlife hospital, modern companion animal care services and accommodation, a multifunctional community education centre and centralized RSPCA South Australia rescue, inspectorate and operations centre.
RSPCA Victoria works in partnership with Zoos Victoria to support wildlife welfare across the state. Since 2020 the partnership has been focused on increasing capacity across Victoria to care for wildlife in emergencies, disasters and wherever specialist wildlife care is needed. Recent highlights include the opening of the RSPCA Koala Ward at Werribee Open Range Zoo in 2022, the launch of a new Wildlife Response Unit based at Healesville Sanctuary and a new laboratory there. Together with work underway at Melbourne Zoo, this is creating a linked wildlife hospital network across the state to support better wildlife welfare.
