Spotlight on Governor’s Patronage – RSPCA WA

The Governor is proud to be Patron of RSPCA WA (external link) which was was established 125 years ago and is the state’s oldest, largest and leading animal welfare charity.

RSPCA WA’s aim is to protect all animals from cruelty by actively promoting public awareness about animal welfare and advocating for improvements in the way people relate to animals. RSPCA work with governments, community and farming groups, helping animals by showing people ‘how’.

On any given day of the year, there are more than 200 animals in the care of RSPCA WA.

While COVID-19 is having an impact on many aspects of our lives, sadly, animal cruelty has not stopped. RSPCA still need your support to help fight cruelty.
