Community Action Day

RSPCA WA Community Action Days are free events that help local communities who may be struggling with basic pet requirements and provides the opportunity for them to get together with RSPCA Inspectors, RSPCA dog trainers, local rangers, South Metropolitan TAFE vet staff and often other rescue organisations.

These events are held regularly at metropolitan parks and reserves, as well as regional locations like Kalgoorlie, Geraldton and as far north as Broome! 

Through these events, we aim to show people how to be a responsible pet owner and that includes providing information about common problems like fleas, worms, ticks, fly bitten ears, mange, shelter, food and water. We often work with rangers to explain pet registrations and local council laws, and there are vets available to give free advice for pets and free check-ups for dogs.

We offer (while stocks last):

  • Pet food for families in financial need,

  • Flea, worming and tick medication for dogs and cats,

  • Free dog microchipping (*not available for litters or breeders) while stocks last

  • Veterinary health checks for dogs, 

  • Pamphlets explaining responsible pet ownership,

  • Free 'Sausage Sizzle', as well as

  • Stickers and various other giveaways.

We encourage members of the public to join us with their dogs however due to welfare concerns, cats and unvaccinated puppies are not able to attend.
