Meet Junior Ambassador Katie Birss

We’re pleased to welcome Katie to our Junior Ambassador team!

At just 8 years old, Katie Birss, our newest Junior Ambassador has been fostering vulnerable cats and dogs for over 5 years, looking after a variety of breeds from Chihuahuas to Great Danes! She’s also supported a Chihuahua rescue group, raising funds for their dogs to have much needed surgery. She’s even adopted her own rescue dog and two foster cats. 

Katie and her family bought a farm especially so they could help look after animals involved in bush fires, which includes alpacas, sheep, and horses to name a few. She’s passionate about rehabilitating native wildlife and animals are frequently abandoned at their farm, so Katie also helps care for them until a forever home can be found. 

One of Katie’s main goals is to educate the community and particularly her peers, on how to stay safe when interacting with dogs, which is an important message that RSPCA WA is keen to spread. You can check out our video here.

We’re so proud to have Katie on board as a Junior Ambassador. If there were more people like Katie, there would be so many more happy animals in this world!
