RSPCA and Bendigo Bank are this week celebrating the milestone of $3 million in support of the Adoptapet program – all thanks to Bendigo Bank customers.

18 October 2017 |Consumer Banking

Adoptapet is a national website that allows prospective pet owners to view animals waiting for adoption at RSPCA locations across Australia from the comfort and convenience of their own home, workplace or mobile phone.

The Adoptapet program is supported in part by Bendigo Bank’s RSPCA Rescue credit card product suite. By signing up for and shopping with one of the RSPCA card products, Bendigo Bank customers are actively helping orphaned animals find new forever homes.

Customers have helped raise more than $3 million, resulting in a second chance for more than 488,000 animals nationally.

RSPCA Australia CEO Heather Neil said the Adoptapet program is well supported across Australia.

“The ongoing support of Bendigo Bank and its generous customers has helped the RSPCA’s Adoptapet program find homes for almost half a million animals since it first launched in 2005,” Ms Neil said.

“A partnership of this length and magnitude is vital for the RSPCA and helps ensure we can continue our work in the community helping all creatures great and small.”

Bendigo Bank’s Executive Engagement Innovation, Robert Musgrove echoed Ms Neil’s sentiments.

“As a Bank, we believe that partnering with likeminded organisations that make a difference to the community is fundamental to our purpose,” Mr Musgrove said.

“It’s partnerships like this one with the RSPCA that have helped us become recognised on a global stage - this year named the top Australian company in the FORTUNE Annual “Change the World” list of Companies that are Doing Well by Doing Good.

“We are so pleased to celebrate this $3 million milestone with RSPCA. Not-for-profit organisations make an important difference in our community; and we applaud the commitment of the RSPCA who work to prevent cruelty to all animals - great and small.” Mr Musgrove added.
