RSPCA ACT is supported by a large membership base in the Canberra community. Without your support we would not be able to care for and protect the thousands of animals that come through our doors every year.

We receive very little from the ACT government and absolutely no federal funding. It is only through the generous donations of people like you that we are able to provide the best possible care for each and every animal that needs our help.

Together we can make a difference to the welfare of all animals by teaching others to treat them with sympathy, consideration, compassion and respect.

Help us be the voice for those who don’t have one of their own. Help us protect them at their most vulnerable. It is only together we can improve the welfare of animals in our community. United we can make an impact.

Show your commitment to animal welfare.
