Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
In the area of influence, we have been increasing community support and growing our supporter base. Successes on these fronts included establishing a media partnership with WIN TV to build community awareness of adoptions (and, ultimately, to increase adoptions) in regional areas. We also increased overall fundraising and community event participation by 15%. To reduce animal surrender rates we have initiated plans to implement targeted de-sexing campaigns and develop a new animal training curriculum Our biggest success in the last 12 months was achieved in our focus area of services. A record number of 23,409 domestic animals received a second chance at life: 15,772 were adopted; 6,226 were reunited with their owners when lost or brought to one of our Care Centres; and 1,411 were transferred to external facilities, such as rescue groups, when this was anticipated to give them abetter chance of adoption.Rehabilitation and release of wildlife is also a priority for us. In the past year, we focused on improving and expanding the veterinary diagnostic assessment of incoming wildlife patients to help ensure that those returned to the wild can survive and thrive.RSPCA Qld also investigated 15,737 animal cruelty complaints and responded to 22,930 animal rescue calls.
