Meet " William "
William was handed in to the RSPCA by the
local police but because of his medical condition at the time William would have been euthanased. By some
miracle the very day William was to be euthanased was the same day that
Jessica (ACS Brisbane Shelter Manager and ACS Founder) phoned the RSPCA to introduce
ACS and to become a contact for them to offer service. The same afternoon Jessica contacted the RSPCA
she received a phone call from the RSPCA asking if ACS could take on a
sick guinea pig that had been surrendered. Within a few hours William was
picked him up.
The RSPCA in the months following the initial surrender of William, were able to introduce a program whereby they could and still now are able to cater for some of the unwell small animals they receive and keep them until they are well enough to be adopted. When numbers are full or when a guinea pig is unable to be treated at the RSPCA, ACS remains any local RSPCA's port of call to help out where we can.
