We are very fortunate that many people think of RSPCA ACT at this time of year. While monetary donations are always the most useful gift you can give to us, we know that sometimes our supporters would rather give us something more tangible. So we asked our staff to put together a wish list that would make it nicer and easier for everyone at the shelter.
