Be Alfie's Guardian Angel this Christmas.
It because people like you donate to our charity, that we can continue the life saving surgeries for animals like Alfie.
Even $10 makes a difference to the animals in our care...
Alfie came to the RSPCA as a stray after he had been seen hanging around a house, looking for food and warmth. Our investigations drew a picture of a cat who had been passed between homes some four times, never finding his true friend. The team at the vet clinic who took care of his health needs, his eye was terribly injured and couldn’t be saved, and our animal care team were surprised no one came for him as he is sociable and loving.
He is 10 years old, with a lot of life ahead of him. Alfie is very much a shoulder cat, who will take any opportunity to sit on any humans’ shoulder and get a good smooch in. He is recovering well and not at all phased but the E collar or the fact that he has lost an eye.
Alfie is healing well, in foster care and will be made available for adoption soon. ... See MoreSee Less

FOSTER CARERS NEEDED
By applying to be a foster carer with RSPCA Tasmania, you will make a life saving difference to an animal in need - as well as receiving a rewarding volunteer experience in return!
We are in need of both short and long term foster carers who can provide a loving home environment to a range of animals who aren’t quite ready for adoption.
We require foster carers for all types of animals, however at the moment we specifically need foster carers for the following animals:
- Adult dogs requiring a change from the shelter environment to further their socialisation
- Ex racing Greyhounds
- Mother cats with kittens
- Timid adult cats who would benefit from a home environment
- Orphaned kittens (between the ages of 4-8 weeks)
- Neonatal kittens (under 4 weeks of age, experience required)
There are endless benefits of foster care for animals and our staff will support you every step of the way to make foster care the best experience for you and your foster animal.
If you are interested in becoming a Foster Carer, please email our Animal Care Coordinator at email@example.com for more information. ... See MoreSee Less

James Mitchell 😍
Judy Rudy you’d be the best foster mum 😊
He is a sweet but shy young cat, who has the most beautiful fluffy coat.
He is almost 2 years old.
Jimmy was recently surrendered as his family moved to a smaller residence and he wasn't coping with limited space.
Jimmy would benefit from a larger home with access to an outdoor cat enclosure, and maybe a home that isn't too busy, as he is overwhelmed by loud noises.
When he is unsure if anything like most cats, will need a quiet place to hide.

This boy is so sweet! He came straight up for a pat and rubbed on my legs. Beautiful mans 🥰😻

Meet Sakura. She is a glamorous 3 year old Tortoiseshell.
Sakura was recently surrendered to the RSPCA as she wasn't getting along with the other cats in her household, which tells us she is best suited to a single cat household.
She will require regular brushing to keep her hair beautiful and it is said she can be a bit of a guts at times, a controlled diet of hills hairball control will keep Sakura in top shape.
As she has previously had access to indoor/outdoor life, she would love a home with access to an outdoor cat enclosure.

Lost my torty (Boot) in April after 14 years. Looked very much like this one. (See my profile pic) When her eyes went like this we would call them spider eyes and it was just before she attacked the hand that was brushing her! Still have her now 15 y.o. sister.
Darlene I’ve found PutPuts twin 🤣
She is such a beautiful girl. I met her a couple days ago, she loves pats and rubbing up against you and didn’t mind a pick up cuddle either 🥰
This cat is amazing! So happy and smoochy. Wont last long before she's adopted.

This week Magistrate Mollard convicted Stephen Marshall Hall, of Westerway, of one count of using a method of management of a pony which is reasonably likely to result in unreasonable and unjustifiable pain or suffering.
The charge, which Mr Hall pleaded guilty to, was that Mr Hall owned a Shetland pony called Molly and during the period between 6 January 2020 to 23 October 2020 he had failed to ensure that the pony was only given access to food which minimised the likelihood of development of laminitis.
Magistrate Mollard noted that the plea of guilty was entirely appropriate.
Mr Hall was sentenced to pay a fine of $3,500 and was disqualified from owning horses or ponies for 3 years.
RSPCA prosecutor, Malcolm Caulfield, pointed out the Tasmanian Equine Welfare Guidelines, made under the Animal Welfare Act, gave useful guidance to owners. The relevant section says: Equines should not be overfed. Overfeeding some equines, particularly idle ponies, can induce laminitis or founder. Animals at risk should be treated according to professional veterinary advice, and should be closely observed. The RSPCA said those guidelines clearly applied in this case, and had not been followed.
Mr Hall’s lawyer, Alan Hensley, had told the Court that Mr Hall had obtained the pony in 2015, and she was probably suffering from laminitis then. Magistrate Mollard said that anyone taking on a laminitic pony, was on notice of the need to take appropriate steps to care for her. From January 2020 Mr Hall had received advice and instructions regarding Molly’s care. However, Mr Hall had given Molly access to grass, which resulted in her having recurring laminitis, and this should not have been allowed to happen. Magistrate Mollard remarked on Mr Hall’s lack of insight in failing to follow the instructions he had been given.
Please take care to understand the needs of any animals in your care.
It’s up to you to keep them safe and well.

Great to see the Equine Welfare Guidelines being used - well done Malcolm. 🙂
And what happened to Molly? Did she sink so far she penetrated the sole or?
He should have been gaoled as well, mongrel
What a horrible man deserves jail
Well done Malcolm and the wonderful RSPCA inspectorate Team.
Am I missing something? Did this guy get fined and disqualified from owning equines for 3 yrs because he let his pony stay on grass and it went lame??? That seems a bit harsh. Dont hate me- Not trying to start a riot or anything. I genuinely don't understand how the punishment is justified.
Got iff lightly. From what understand the pony was put down her feet were that bad.
Disgusting neglect and cruelty by STEPHEN MARSHALL HALL of WESTERWAY !
Animal Welfare done right for a change 👏👏
Happens to hundreds each year, no law about being fat and riding should be though
