The RSPCA receives thousands of animals every year in every State and Territory in Australia. Annual statistics on the numbers of animals received, reclaimed or rehomed are compiled on a national basis by RSPCA Australia. The statistics cover each financial year and give details on the receipt and placement of animals by each state and territory RSPCA during that period. The statistics also include the number of cruelty complaints received by the RSPCA inspectorate and prosecutions undertaken.

You can access the most recent RSPCA annual statistics and those for previous years from the RSPCA Australia website.
