During the 2013/2014 financial year, RSPCA South Australia cared for 10,418 animals.

Through the dedication of our staff and volunteers a majority of the animals were cared for across our three shelters. Located at Lonsdale, Whyalla, and Port Lincoln, our shelters provide a loving and caring temporary home for animals before they find a loving forever family to call their own.

Shelter services
  • Temporary pet boarding
  • Stray animal impounding services, including reuniting lost animals with their owners
  • Animal owner surrenders
  • Veterinary and behavioural services (for RSPCA animals, not for the general public)
