The RSPCA is Australia’s pre-eminent animal welfare organisation.
RSPCA Darwin, as a member of the federated national organisation, is an independent, locally-run charity; established in 1965 and celebrating 55 years of operations during 2020. RSPCA Darwin relies entirely on grants and fundraising to continue to do its work. With the support of our wonderful community, all the funds raised remain with the animals of the Northern Territory. RSPCA Darwin cares for over 750 animals each year who come to us through no fault of their own, whether lost, abandoned, neglected or worse.
RSPCA Darwin provides a strong voice for all animals, using scientific evidence to inform and advocate for long term improvements to animal welfare through legislation, by-laws and advice.
RSPCA Darwin operates on a well-maintained five-acre site in Berrimah, leased in perpetuity from the Northern Territory Government. RSPCA Darwin employs around 15 staff members in full and part time, as well as casual arrangements. The organisation is led by a very capable General Manager. The workplace is complemented by a large volunteer base who contribute approximately 8,000 hours per year.
RSPCA Darwin cares for predominantly puppies, dogs, kittens, cats and occasionally other animals such as pigs, ducks, chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs.
RSPCA Darwin’s Joint Patrons are Her Honour the Honourable Vicki O’Halloran AO, Administrator of the Northern Territory and Mr Craig O’Halloran.
