Currency 4 Creatures is a donation drive held this October aimed at raising $20,000 to funding the desexing and microchipping of 260 unwanted kittens we expect to come into our care this summer. MEOW!
Have you travelled recently and have left over foreign notes?
Have you got a stash of cash that you are saving for when you may visit again (but you probably won't)?
Do you love to make a difference to the lives of adorable kittens?
We are asking any one with leftover foreign notes (including AUD) and a fur-tastic love for feline's to be generous this October. Donations can be made by heading into major Commonwealth Bank locations across Canberra as well as our Weston Shelter.

How will the donations help?
Our goal is to raise $20,000 this October to help us de-sex and microchip 260 kittens we expect to see this summer. That means it costs us $77 to desex one feline. Your donation will cover the cost of:
- Vet team's time to prepare and perform surgery on the kitten
- Medical equipment involved in performing the surgery
- After care provided by staff to ensure the surgery is a success
- Plenty of cuddles and love by RSPCA ACT staff and volunteers!
All donations made in foreign notes and AUD will go towards helping unwanted kittens. Unfortunately foreign coins are unable to be converted to assist these furry felines.
When is this running?
Currency 4 Creatures will commence on Monday 1st October, running through until 31st October.
