Description of charity's activities and outcomes
RSPCA Qld is the state’s oldest, largest and leading animal welfare charity dedicated to improving the lives of all domestic, farmed and native animals throughout Queensland. RSPCA Qld has 13 animal adoption centres and 2 animal hospitals. RSPCA Qld re-homes and reunites more animals than any other welfare organisation in the southern hemisphere. To achieve this goal we are working on many fronts: rehabilitating more animals with veterinary and behavioural issues, lessening the time they spend in our shelters, developing strategies to connect pets and owners more easily, improving behaviour and developing new ways to promote our adoptions. During the 2017-2018 year 56,015 animals came into our care. We also again increased the number of wildlife patients cared for to 24,958. In the area of influence, we have been increasing community support and growing our supporter base. To reduce animal surrender rates we have expanded targeted de-sexing campaigns and animal training curriculum. Our commitment is to save lives. During 2017-2018 a significant 354,941 animal calls were attended as well as 17,929 animal cruelty complaints being investigated. For the 2017/2018 year RSPCA Qld provided for 18,339 animal adoptions and also had over 7,700 animals fostered by our dedicated team of volunteers
