27,114 animals in urgent need of Guardian Angels

RSPCA is urgently seeking Guardian Angels to provide safety and care for the 27,114 animals spending the festive season in shelters nationally.

Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for RSPCA shelters, with thousands of unwanted and neglected animals coming through our doors.

“To be a Guardian Angel is to give the gift of a better future to the dogs, cats, pocket pets, birds, and livestock who have a forever home on the top of their wish list,” said Phoebe Brasher, RSPCA NSW Senior Manager of Fundraising.

“One out of every three animals that turn to the RSPCA each year will be spending the festive season in our shelters. By becoming a Guardian Angel, you are making a direct positive impact on their life now and answering their wish for a brighter future.”

Sign-up to become a Guardian Angel and your compassion will provide love, care, and support to an animal in need.

  • $29.00 could help provide a homeless cat with a warm bed, litter tray, and toys this Christmas
  • $56.00 could help provide antibiotics to a homeless dog recovering from emergency surgery
  • $83.00 could help provide an x-ray for an abused animal in our care
  • $162.00 could help keep one of our brave inspectors on the road fighting animal cruelty.
