Hi Loren, sorry to hear you’re having trouble with Gus biting too much. The RSPCA and WOAW website have some great information on mouthing and biting to get you started.
Billy is our RSPCA goat genius!
He’s here to answer your questions about wildlife, farm animals, pets and the RSPCA.
The biggest difference between wolves and all dogs is that dogs are domesticated and wolves are not. Dogs and wolves are two different, though related, species.
Hi Jasmin, thanks for your questions. You have raised some important issues about animal welfare in Australia to do with the breeding of companion animals.
Hi Sarah, thanks for your question and great to hear you care so much about animals and want to be involved in caring for them. You have many options available for working with animals, from career to volunteering opportunities.
It sounds like you are aware of how dangerous it is for animals (usually dogs) to be left inside a hot car. Every year the RSPCA hears of countless animals who die in cars while theirs owners shop, chat, run errands or other meaningless things compared with the life of their pet.
Hi Charlotte, I am so amazed that your shitzu is 17! You must take very good care of your dog. The oldest living shitzu is an old boy named Smokey who lives in the United States and is 26 years old.
Hi Jessica, Thank you for your question regarding ragdoll kittens and their adoption price. RSPCA have many kittens and adult cats looking for new homes everyday.
In the wild, cats hunt down their food by stalking it. A pet cat still likes to pounce, because they are practicing their hunting skills. It is important that all of our pets can display this type of normal behaviour.
What a magnificent carpet python with you in your photo. Obviously the carpet python, like many snakes in Australia, is not dangerous or deadly to humans or you would not have been looking so relaxed in your photo!
Goats love eating but just like other animals they can be fussy with their food. The impression that goats eat a lot might come from a few different reasons.
