Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Mind Your Language

The other day someone called me a sheeple. I was offended. Not personally, but on behalf of sheep. It’s a term meant to denigrate my agency by suggesting I have herd stupidity. Sheep are incredible, and surprising beings. Before you start denigrating sheep, you should know they are emotionally complex animals who can self-medicate!

COVID-19 hospital horror – opening up and the dangers ahead

A hospital is not a health farm. For a start, the food has a terrible reputation. Seriously though, when life is on the brink, a hospital is the destination.

To celebrate the big 146, RSPCA NSW have released a cuter than cute video to thank supporters, staff and volunteers across the state for their hard work, dedication and collaborative efforts.

Today commemorates 146 years of RSPCA NSW’s mission to protect and serve all creatures great and small.

Over the past year 30,000 animals with nowhere else to turn came through RSPCA doors for vital veterinary care, food and a warm bed, and the chance for a new life.

RSPCA NSW inspectors investigated over 15,000 cruelty complaints and supporters and donors raised a whopping $485,000 for the RSPCA Million Paws Walk 2019.

They say their job does not stop at animals – they believe behind every animal is a human being who needs guidance, encouragement and help. We have and provided education programs to schools and veterinary services to disadvantaged communities across the state.

They receive less than two per cent of our funding from the government and rely almost entirely on the goodwill of our loyal supporters and like-minded members of the community.

Supporters passion for helping animals in need has kept the RSPCA going for 146 years. We could not do what we do without the hard work, dedication and collaborative efforts of our supporters, staff and volunteers.

Did you know you can pledge your birthday to RSPCA NSW? Your generous support will ensure your birthday is memorable by making a lifesaving difference to animals in need.

By asking for donations in lieu of gifts for your next birthday, you will allow RSPCA NSW to continue vital work helping neglected, abandoned and surrendered animals for the years ahead.
