When their owner passed away, they were left with someone who didn’t know how to give them the care they so desperately needed.
Their hoofs became severely overgrown. A simple trim every couple of months could have spared them years of suffering. Instead, they were forced to live every day in extreme discomfort.
Timid and largely left to fend for themselves, these girls were eating whatever grass they could find and getting the occasional bale of hay. Their coats are matted, grooming another simple task forgotten.
These neglected girls deserve to live the rest of their lives with a family that will give them loads of love, care and attention.
This includes lengthy treatment to bring their hoofs back to good condition, x-rays, general vet treatment and transport.
Animal Emergency Fund FAQ’s
We know that education is our most powerful tool to reduce animal suffering.
But our Lonsdale shelter is the most out-dated RSPCA facility of any of the major Australian states, and is not suited for redevelopment. We must create a modern hub for animal welfare, where we educate, engage and empower South Australians in best practice animal care.
We believe the ideal site for our proposed new Animal Care Campus is Glenthorne Farm, at O’Halloran Hill in Adelaide’s south.
We would only need 4 hectares of land to realise our vision – just 2% of Glenthorne Farm’s overall 208 hectares.
With the state election looming, we have a rare window of opportunity to show South Australia’s leaders that broad community support exists for RSPCA at Glenthorne Farm.
To help our cause right now, please sign our petition.

RSPCA South Australia is shocked and appalled at the catastrophic injury suffered by a bull during a Professional Bullriders Australia event at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. We call on Adelaide Venue Management Corporation (which manages the Centre) to commit to never hosting an inhumane rodeo or bull riding event again.
