The RSPCA NSW Mudgee & District Volunteer Branch needs your help
Run entirely by volunteers, the branch has rehomed and cared for many of the local area’s animals. In fact, over the past six years alone they have rehomed 395 dogs and puppies, and 36 cats and kittens.
“Each year the branch works tirelessly to raise funds to care for animals in need. They organise desexing, pay for any necessary surgeries and medication, and then fund ongoing health care,” said Steve Coleman, RSPCA NSW CEO. “Approximately $18,000 in vet bills must be paid for each year and if the branch falls short, it comes very generously out of the volunteers’ own pockets. Their main purpose is to find surrendered, abused, neglected or homeless animals good and loving homes.”
The RSPCA Mudgee & District Volunteer Branch is a lifeline for animals in need but they’ve run out of funds. Without it, there will be no RSPCA presence in the local community. Can you help? The branch is asking for the community’s assistance to get them back on their feet and all donations over $2 are tax deductible.
