The team at RSPCA Dakabin is calling on Santa’s helpers out in the community to spread some Christmas cheer to animals that don’t have families to spend the holidays with.

With Christmas just around the corner, the animal shelter is asking the community to dig deep and drop off donations of food, toys, treats and more to the animals that are waiting for the greatest gift of all – a new home and loving family.

RSPCA spokesperson Emma Lagoon says the donations would make an enormous difference.

“Sadly, not every pet will have a home this Christmas, and we know times are a little bit difficult everyone right now, but if you would like to give a gift to the animals that we'll be caring for over Christmas, any item on our wish list will be greatly appreciated!”

  • Clam shell pools for dogs
  • Cat carriers
  • Pet cages for mice, rats, guinea pigs and birds
  • A4 paper
  • Large, heavy-duty garbage bags
