Last financial year, RSPCA Victoria received 21,989 animals into our care including 8,843 dogs, 10,650 cats, 1,321 wildlife and 1,175 livestock, horses and small animals. More than 2,100 animals required time in volunteer foster care to recover, while 6,200 were reclaimed and 8,956 animals were adopted to new loving homes in the same period.
Our inspectorate investigated 10,180 reports of cruelty, with each report often relating to numerous individual offences. In 2016 and 2017, cruelty offences related to those reports averaged almost 20,000, which has doubled since 2006. It’s this alarming rate of growth that we need to stop.
