At RSPCA South Australia, we do all we can for the animals in our care. This includes those who need emergency treatment and surgery.
We will never give up on these animals, but we can’t afford to provide these emergency treatments without your help.
By donating to our Vet Emergency Fund, you can provide these animals with the urgent treatment they need, and give them a second chance at finding a loving home.
Answers to your frequently asked questions
My animal needs surgery and I can’t afford it. Can I add them to this list?
Unfortunately, no. This website is to raise funds for animals that are in RSPCA South Australia’s care and custody. If you have financial trouble and your pet is in need of medical treatment or surgery, please contact us on 1300 4 777 22 so we can talk to you about your options. It is important that all animals receive the medical treatment they need.
Is my gift tax deductible and will I get a receipt for it?
Yes, any gift over $2 that is made to RSPCA South Australia is tax deductible. You will receive an official receipt emailed immediately to the email address you supplied when making your donation. If you have any further questions or if you haven’t received your receipt, you can also contact us directly on 1300 4 777 22, or send an email to email@example.com.
Will you keep my information secure?
Why have some animals already had surgery?
Sometimes animals come to us with such serious, life-threatening conditions that require immediate treatment. Fundraising for these animals is still just as important as we need recover the funds we spent on the animal’s treatment so we can continue to care for others who need our help.
Why can’t RSPCA South Australia pay for this treatment themselves?
RSPCA South Australia is a non-government, community based charity. We rely on the generous support of the community for 90% of our funding. Without donations from the community, through campaigns such as the Animal Emergency Fund, we simply could not be there for animals in need.
What happens to the animals if the fundraising target isn’t reached?
We are committed to providing the best possible care for all creatures great and small. As a result, we will provide each and every animal with the care and treatment they need even if we aren’t able to reach the total fundraising target.
What happens to the funds if more is raised than what is needed?
If there are any funds leftover after medical treatment is provided to the animal, it will be directed back into the Animal Emergency Fund to help pay for treatment for the many other animals that need our help.
