Help us reform RSPCA NSW to reduce the appalling kill rates of cats and dogs in their shelters – in 2011 and 2012 over 50% of cats and dogs in RSPCA NSW’s care were killed, while in each year it made annual profits exceeding $10 million. As at 30 June 2012, RSPCA NSW held over $40 million in cash and shares, money not being used for the purpose for which it was donated. By June 2014, this had grown to $56 million.
This page is for those in rescue, and for community members concerned by RSPCA NSW’s appallingly high kill rates for its shelter animals, and those of Australia’s many high-kill pounds and shelters. We aim to encourage community awareness of the issues, and to push RSPCA and other high-kill pounds and shelters to reform their practices.
Under Pound & Rescue Info, you will find an overview of pounds, shelters and rescues, the difference between them and the role that each of these play.
Under the Interactive tab, you can explore how your local NSW council is performing compared to others in your region, or to comparable councils.
