How is RSPCA WA funded? RSPCA WA is a non-government, community based charity. We rely on the generous support of the community to survive. More than 90 per cent of the funding we need to carry out our animal protection work comes from the community. Less than 10% of our funding is provided by a grant from the State Government. The government funding we do receive is allocated to cover a portion of the costs of enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act 2002 and education on companion animals. We are so thankful to the generous and caring individuals and organisations who donate so we can continue helping animals through caring for animals in our shelter, rehabilitation and finding new homes for them, keeping Inspectors on the road responding to cruelty reports, foster care and volunteer programs, and community education to continue to improve the lives of all animals, great and small.
