$12 Million for RSPCA shelter expansion
The largest animal shelter in NSW will receive a major upgrade thanks to a $12 million investment by the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government in the 2019-20 NSW Budget.
Minister for Local Government Shelley Hancock said the RSPCA’s Yagoona centre is highly valued by the community for its shelter and animal welfare enforcement services, veterinary clinic, as well as the education and training programs it runs.
