RSPCA NSW cares for abandoned, neglected, sick and surrendered animals across the state.

Rest in Peace, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Date Updated: Sep 9, 2022

QE2Our community of staff and volunteers at RSPCA NSW are incredibly sad to hear about the passing of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

During her 70-year reign, The Queen displayed love and kindness towards all creatures, great and small. She had a passion for horses, and adored being in the company of her beloved Corgis.

Her Majesty was a Patron of several animal charities, including the RSPCA in England and Wales.

The RSPCA received royal approval in Australia in 1923, becoming known as the Royal Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. As an organisation, we are proud of our royal heritage and rich history.

We would like to thank Her Majesty for her commitment to animal welfare, and for showing the world how loyal and special the bond between animals and humans can be.

Today, we join the community in sending our deepest condolences to the Royal Family and to the people of the United Kingdom.

May she rest in eternal peace.

Steve Coleman, CEO of RSPCA NSW
