Seven News star Amelia Mulcahy announced as RSPCA South Australia’s first Ambassador

December 01, 2018

Super exciting news! We’ve just signed up our very first ambassador – long-time RSPCA supporter and Seven News Adelaide television personality, Amelia Mulcahy.

As an RSPCA South Australia ambassador, Amelia will play a crucial role in helping us tell our community, nation and the world about our work preventing cruelty to animals.

Ambassadorship perfect fit for animal-loving star

Amelia is Seven News Adelaide’s much-loved weather presenter and a huge supporter of all creatures great and small.

For several years, Amelia has kindly helped us spread the word about shelter animals in desperate need of new homes, via an exclusive Today Tonight segment called ‘Pet of the Week’. Each week, Amelia tells the story of an RSPCA animal in need – and often they’re adopted the very next day!

“I’ve honestly fallen in love with every single one of them. And I love learning all about the great work that RSPCA does along the way,” Amelia says.

Amelia has also volunteered her time for many RSPCA causes over the years.

She’s twice emceed our major annual fundraising event (and the biggest doggy day out in Adelaide!) Million Paws Walk, and in 2018 was our official Cupcake Day Ambassador. What a superstar!

Meet Barkley, Amelia’s very own furbaby

Amelia and her husband Matt share their home with a gorgeous 3-year-old British bulldog named Barkley. He keeps her very busy, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I love spending time with him, he has so much personality and loves hanging out,” Amelia says.

Barkley lives a wonderful life but Amelia knows that there are less fortunate animals that she can use her voice to help.

Amelia’s journey as an RSPCA Ambassador

As our first Brand Ambassador, Amelia will help us spread the word about the many ways RSPCA South Australia supports animals in need and prevents cruelty.

“RSPCA is so much more than just a shelter. I wish our society didn’t have a need for RSPCA’s Inspectorate but sadly we do, and their officers see some shocking cases,” she says.

“These cases then go to court, and RSPCA gives a voice to these animals.”

We’re so grateful to Amelia for coming on board as an Ambassador and being a voice for the animals of South Australia. Keep an eye out for Amelia on Instagram and at RSPCA South Australia events, such as Million Paws Walk!

Our influential RSPCA Ambassadors (and their furry counterparts, known as Furbassadors!) volunteer their time to help spread our message and create a world free of animal cruelty. Meet them all here.
