RSPCA NSW Community Outreach Programs

In a bid to reduce the number of unwanted companion animals in the regional parts of Australia and to improve their overall health, RSPCA NSW desexed, vaccinated and microchipped as many as 80 animals in Condobolin in just three days.

This community outreach program is important to the community as it offers services to pensioners and low income earners; those who wouldn’t usually be able to access veterinary care. The program is funded by Lachlan Shire Council and organised by local ranger Willy Cunningham.

The Community Animal Welfare Scheme (CAWS) has been an initiative of RSPCA NSW in regional NSW for the past 11 years to help reduce the number of unwanted animals ending up in pounds. Already this year CAWS has reached Walgett, Lightning Ridge, Bathurst and Bowraville.
