THE RSPCA WA
RSPCA WA was founded in 1892 and is the leading authority on animal welfare issues in WA. RSPCA WA is responsible, through our Inspectorate, for enforcing the Animal Welfare Act. We work with Government, industry bodies and the community to improve animal welfare and campaign on a range of issues such as puppy farming or illicit breeding, battery hens, sow stalls and live export.
RSPCA upholds five freedoms for animals and believes all animals deserve freedom from: hunger and thirst, from discomfort, pain, injury and disease and also from fear and distress.
Last year RSPCA WA received more than 16,506 cruelty calls, investigated 6,353 cruelty complaints and rehomed hundreds of animals.
FUNDRAISE FOR THE RSPCA WA
On any given day of the year, there are more than 200 animals, like Sunday the pig, being cared for at RSPCA WA’s animal care centre in Malaga. RSPCA WA also provides support and education to pet owners in the community
It is safe to say that Sunday the pig could be Perth’s luckiest little piggie after RSPCA WA inspectors saved his bacon from being served as Christmas lunch!
The piglet was surrendered to RSPCA WA inspectors after his owner received the animal as a ‘Christmas joke’.
Sunday arrived in poor condition as he had been fed an unsuitable diet of ice-cream, watermelon and flour mixed with water. He was also kept in an area with no shade or mud that left Sunday suffering from exposure to the heat and a condition called psycroptic sores on his skin, which his owners had failed to treat.
Sunday has since been treated for his skin condition and is enjoying a healthy diet and has regular mud baths whilst waiting to find his forever home as a family pet on a suitable property.
You can help Sunday, and all the animals in the care of RSPCA WA, by fundraising in this year’s Swan Valley Mudfest.
