Auxiliaries

RSPCA WA Auxiliaries are run by volunteers and are the backbone of our organisation, particularly in regional WA. Auxiliary volunteers play a vital role in supporting RSPCA WA and driving fundraising initiatives in their local communities.

You can find RSPCA WA Auxiliaries in Albany, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Perth and York. Contact your local auxiliary to find out more about how you can help us help animals in need in your area.


Albany

The Albany Auxiliary of the RSPCA was formed in 2001. They began as an Op Shop to raise funds for RSPCA WA. Run entirely by a team of 19 volunteers, they raise the funds needed to run the re-homing program, the cat and dog sterilization program for local pension and health care card holders as well as supporting the lifesaving work of the RSPCA WA. Their volunteers include nine carers who provide foster care for animals up for adoption. Having no kennel facilities, we could not do our work without them and we are always on the lookout for more. If you would like to become a foster carer, please contact the Albany Auxiliary.

They are involved with various fundraising activities, including the Albany Agricultural Show and the local Million Paws Walk. They also have an ever-changing range of dogs and cats (along with the occasional other animal available for adoption). When surrendered, they receive vet checks,
sterilisation, microchips, vaccinations and sometimes
training to get them ready for adoption.

Geraldton

The Friends of RSPCA WA Inc Geraldton Auxiliary are a small group of committed RSPCA Members who help raise funds to support RSPCA WA.

The Auxiliary consists of 10 members who organise several fundraising events each year.  

In May, they hold a Million Paws Walk at Apex Park. Not only do they organise the walk itself, but they also run One Day Raffles, Sausage Sizzle, Tea & Coffee Stall and a Pet Parade.  Several local animal orientated groups are also invited to join in on the day. 

The Geraldton Auxiliary also holds regular sausage sizzles at Bunnings and take their tins to the streets in October to raise funds for Happy Tails Day. 

The raised funds are used to provide pet sterilization subsidies for Pensioner Card and Health Care Card holders in Geraldton. They also support the efforts of the region’s full time Inspector.

If you’re interested in joining the Geraldton Auxiliary, do not hesitate to contact them at auxiliarygeraldton@westnet.com.au

Kalgoorlie

Contact: Kellie (President)
Email: rspcakalgoorlie@gmail.com

The Kalgoorlie Auxiliary works with local pounds and RSPCA WA to provide rehabilitation and re-homing for neglected animals in the Kalgoorlie region. They have a core group of ten volunteers who help run the auxiliary, plus more than sixty volunteers who help out with community events and fundraising efforts.

Locals know and love the Auxiliary’s mascot RSPCA Rover, who makes regular appearances at community events such as the Boulder Markets on the 3rd Sunday of every month. The Auxiliary fundraises through activities such as Bunnings sausage sizzles, chocolate sales, pretzel sales, and even a children’s skating disco! The Auxiliary also runs a successful rehoming program, finding homes for twenty-five animals a month (on average).

There is also a dedicated Facebook following for Chip, their beautiful Pomeranian cross puppy. Chip endured major surgery and has ongoing health issues, but always finds the time to pose for a weekly photo so her fans can follow her progress.

Adoption fees and donations help cover desexing, microchipping, up-to-date vaccinations, worming and flea treatments.

York

The York Auxiliary of RSPCA WA has been dedicated to raising funds to help animals in need since its formation in 1998.  It started as a once-a-week stall for RSPCA WA at the Forrest Oval market, and has grown to a dedicated team of mostly long term volunteers. 

The group is always in need of stock for their wonderful op shop, which sells quality clothing, household goods and bric-a-brac. If you have any suitable items or if you are a local resident and have some time available to volunteer in the shop, which is open seven days a week, please contact Dianne on (08) 9641 2494.
