RSPCA South Australia
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA South Australia) is the state’s oldest and largest animal welfare charity. Since our establishment in Adelaide in 1875, we have remained the leading voice for all creatures great and small across South Australia.
We work non-stop to defend the dignity of animals, while fighting to prevent animal cruelty. We are animal protectors, carers and guardians. We bring solace to the abandoned, surrendered and injured. We offer shelter, education, medical attention and love. We help animals in need find loving forever homes. And we advocate for the humane treatment for all living creatures.
Crucially, we are also the only charity empowered by State Parliament to prosecute animal cruelty and neglect. Our small team of inspectors respond to more the 4,000 reports of animal cruelty every year, investigating complaints against all kinds of animals in all kind of situations.
Our important animal welfare work is almost entirely funded by community donations. We rely on the goodwill of our loyal supporters to continue being there for animals when they need us most.
