“It's a role I take very seriously and I hope during these difficult times, everyone can look at finding a dollar or two to help our four legged friends find a loving home,” he said.
Chair of The Petbarn Foundation Scott Charters also said, “We believe that all pets deserve the chance to have a happy and healthy life with a loving family.”
“Our national partnership with the RSPCA is integral to ensuring shelter animals find their forever home,” he said.
Give to Get Them Home is a full-day event being held on 1 October, and is designed to better connect valued supporters with the vital work that can be done by the RSPCA as a result of their support.
The impact of every dollar donated on the day is maximised and amplified by the generous contributions of corporate partners who match, double or even triple the dollars donated.
Hundreds of RSPCA staff and volunteers across the country join in to turn the day into a high-energy celebration in recognition of their important work year-round, with regular visits from adorable shelter and adopted animals as well as local celebrities and VIPs.
In 2019, Give to Get Them Home was held nationally for the first time and raised around $2.8M to fund the RSPCA’s vital work in caring for and protecting tens of thousands of animals every year.
Across Australia, the RSPCA accepts over 132,000 animals into its shelters every year and investigates over 58,000 complaints of animal cruelty and neglect.
