Our aim is to keep pets and their elderly owners happy, healthy and together in their own homes for as long as possible.

We can assist people 65 years of age or older with temporary foster accommodation and/or emergency boarding of the pet should the owner require medical treatment, respite or other assistance. We also help with veterinary treatment, assist with pet grooming, and conduct home visits to assist with basic pet care. These services are also available to palliative care patients of any age who are socially isolated.

As with all RSPCA services, POOPs does not receive any ongoing government funding, so relies on your generosity to continue to help people and their pets. Volunteers for the program are also welcome. For more information, please email poops@rspcansw.org.au or phone (02) 9782 4408.
