RSPCA Bendigo has provided refuge, care and rehabilitation to animals since 1977. In the past year alone, RSPCA Bendigo has cared for 3,197 animals from surrounding areas.
With generous community support, we were able to redevelop and upgrade our Bendigo shelter in 2009. Our upgrades included housing cats in a temperature controlled environment to protect them from the elements and dogs in north-facing kennels, so they now enjoy lots of sunshine!
Our work in Bendigo and achievements in animal welfare are only
made possible with generous support from the local community. Whether you are able to contribute a financial donation, donate blankets, attend our local Million Paws Walk or spare your time as a volunteer - everything helps the animals we care for.
