More than 70 animals found living in filthy conditions
"We were shocked to receive another report about a significant amount of animals living in appalling conditions inside of two weeks," RSPCA CEO David van Ooran said.
The RSPCA's shelter was originally built to accommodate 170 animals and today's operation takes the total number of animals in RSPCA's care to over 370 animals which has stretched the charity's resources to the limit.
"We are currently experiencing a crisis with more than twice the amount of animals normally in our care," Mr van Ooran said.
"Many of these animals are a result of irresponsible breeders and will require extensive medical treatment and long term care. Currently, on average, it costs us $15 a day to provide basic needs for each animal, which does not include costs for veterinary medicines.
"We are calling on the public to urgently help us with donations, to help fund urgent treatment and accommodation to house the influx of animals and we are looking for foster carers.
"It is critical that the public continues to report these matters to the RSPCA because without the support of our community we cannot continue to respond to these calls for help and rescue animals from these appalling conditions," Mr van Ooran said.
