When Gracie first arrived at our Burwood clinic, she was one of the saddest dogs we’d ever seen. She was in so much pain she could barely move and she was terrified – too scared to even eat a treat.

We are so grateful Inspector Jeremy found her when he did, whilst out investigating an animal cruelty report. He gathered Gracie up in his arms, gently carried her to his truck and thought “this is probably the first time you’ve ever had a hug”.

RSPCA Inspectors like Jeremy don’t work alone. When they go out to rescue animals from cruelty and neglect, the RSPCA Rescue Team goes with them. These are our amazing supporters who give a regular monthly gift to help put petrol in the tank and to help save lives.

Today, we’re asking you to join the Rescue Team - when you do, you’ll be standing shoulder to shoulder with RSPCA Inspectors like Jeremy as they rescue animals from cruelty and neglect.

Sadly, thousands of cases of animal cruelty are reported to RSPCA Victoria every year. Heartbreakingly, last year, the number of animals needing to be rescued by our Inspectorate went up 6%, after having risen 23% the year before.

We desperately need your help.

With less than 10% government funding, we rely almost solely on the goodwill of the community to rescue and care for animals at risk of cruelty and neglect.

As part of the Rescue Team, you can be assured that beautiful animals like Gracie have the very best chance of escaping their life of cruelty and abuse to ultimately find their forever home.

So please, join this special group of Victorians who care deeply about the wellbeing and happiness of our animals. When you do, you’ll have peace of mind that you’re doing your bit, each and every day. And you’ll be an integral part of the solution.

Will you become part of the RSPCA Rescue Team today?
