RSPCA calling for Guardian Angels

Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) is urgently seeking support for thousands of animals spending the festive season in shelters. They’re calling on all pet caring people – Guardian Angels – to help with the 17,026 animals in their care nationally.

Christmas Day may be done and dusted for another year with cute puppies and kittens finding their way into people’s hearts and homes, but the RSPCA is calling for Guardian Angels to help support the thousands of other animals still in shelters across the country.

“Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for RSPCA shelters, with thousands of dogs, cats, pocket pets, birds, and livestock in our care waiting for a better future,” says RSPCA NSW Senior Manager of Fundraising Phoebe Brasher.

“To be a Guardian Angel is to give the gift of hope and kindness to the thousands of animals in our care who have finding their forever family on the top of their wish list.”

If you sign-up to become a Guardian Angel your compassion will provide love, care, and support to an animal in need. Here’s how you can help:

  • $30 could help provide a homeless cat with a warm bed, litter tray, and toys.
  • $58 can help rehabilitate an abandoned or abused dog, helping them to trust humans again.
  • $77 could help pay for the transport of animals between shelters to maximise their hopes of adoption.
  • $200 can provide vaccinations and microchips for animals living in remote and regional areas without access to veterinary care.

If you’d like to become a Guardian Angel to a dog, cat, or another animal, or if you know someone who loves animals, you can donate to the RSPCA on their behalf and send them an e-card with details of a shelter animal the donation will help to protect.
