  RSPCA Warrnambool

Warrnambool has been home to an RSPCA shelter since 1983. The shelter provides refuge, care and rehabilitation to animals from the Warrnambool and surrounding areas. In the past year alone, RSPCA Warrnambool has cared for 1,380 animals.  

Our tireless work in Warrnambool and our 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.

The operations of RSPCA Warrnambool are overseen by our Shelter Supervisor, Tracey, and a dedicated team of staff and volunteers.

Map and opening hours
Meet Tracey (RSPCA Warrnambool Shelter Supervisor)

Tracey was an animal attendant for four years before becoming our Warrnambool shelter supervisor in 2009. Tracey's working day is always busy and varied and aside from office duties and serving customers, she loves nothing more than to interact and play with all the animals at the shelter. In fact, her favourite part of the job is working on the computer with a four-legged friend curled up on her lap! Although she often finds it challenging dealing with lost or surrendered animals, Tracey loves the fact that it is probably the only job in the world where caring for and playing with animals is part of the job description!

Microchipping

RSPCA Warrnambool now offers a microchipping service for dogs and cats. Appointments are essential, so please contact us on 03 5561 2591 to book an appointment for your dog or cat to be microchipped. Microchipping your pet is very important, as it gives you the best chance of being reunited with your four-legged family member if he/she goes missing.
