RSPCA Burwood East Lost & Found will be open on Christmas Day from 9.00am to 5.00pm.

If your local RSPCA Animal Care Centre is not open, please contact your nearest 24 hour vet or emergency centre for medical emergencies, or your local council for other animal matters.

A report of animal cruelty can be lodged by telephone or online.
