Join RSPCA WA for a cuteness overload
A new state-of-the-art cattery will allow RSPCA WA to find new families for more than three times as many cats as it does currently.
"This facility will provide a tremendous boost in our capacity to help cats in need," said David van Ooran, RSPCA WA CEO. "It will enable us to provide shelter and safety for up to 2,000 kittens and cats each year."
"We've designed this facility to provide the very best standard in animal welfare," said Mr van Ooran. "The cats are safe and comfortable during their stay and will undergo essential vet treatments such as desexing, microchipping, vaccinations and any other medical care they need before being rehomed."
"Every minute detail has been considered in the design of this facility right down to colour coding of mops and vacuum cleaners to ensure the highest standard of quarantine is maintained throughout the building."
"This facility would not have been possible without the generous support of donors and the Department of Local Government and Communities."
"The generosity of the community has been humbling. It shows just how much people value animal welfare and want to see neglected animals find their forever homes."
More than 700 donors bought a brick paver to support the construction of the cattery, which contributed to the $250,000 raised from community donations. The personally engraved pavers have been installed in front of the cattery.
"RSPCA WA relies on donations and community support to generate more than 90% of the funds required to sustain its animal protection work, as only six percent is covered by a grant from the State Government."
"Our supporters are instrumental in helping us improve animal welfare standards across the community."
