The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Queensland (RSPCA Qld) is the state’s leading animal welfare charity, dedicated to improving the lives of all domestic, farmed and native animals throughout Queensland. Formed in 1883 in Queensland, animals have been turning to us for nearly 140 years. Read our history here.

RSPCA Queensland is a non-government, community based charity.

Caring for over 45,000 animals every year, RSPCA Queensland relies heavily on the generosity of animal lovers in the community to continue to provide lifesaving services to animals in need.

Our operations are 96% funded by donations from thoughtful Queenslanders, just like you.

In addition to caring for sick, injured and displaced domestic animals and wildlife, RSPCA Queensland is the only charity in the state with the power to prosecute animal cruelty and neglect under the Animal Care and Protection Act (2001). 

Our mission statement is simple, but powerful: Together We Change Lives
