Emergency Appeals

At RSPCA Victoria, we do all we can for the animals in our care. This includes those who need emergency treatment and surgery. We never give up on these animals, but as a community-funded charity, we can’t afford to provide this emergency care without your help.

By donating to our Animal Emergency Appeals, you’re helping provide these animals with the urgent treatment they need, and giving them a second chance at finding a loving home.

Meet the animals who most urgently need your help.
