RSPCA annual statistics

The RSPCA receives thousands of animals every year in every State and Territory in Australia. Annual statistics on the numbers of animals received, reclaimed or rehomed are compiled on a national basis by RSPCA Australia. The statistics cover each financial year and give details on the receipt and placement of animals by each state and territory RSPCA during that period.
