Spring has marked the start of trauma season for the RSPCA with 2,190 animal rescues in August.
Rescue teams are responding to animals hit by cars, orphaned and juvenile animals, animals attacked by dogs or cats, and animals found entangled.
Animal Rescue Manager Josephine Jordan says they are calling for volunteers to join their Rescue Units, including the one in Townsville.
“We’re doing our best to respond to all calls for help right now, but the demand will only continue to increase because of breeding season and wildlife becoming more active,” she says.
Animal Rescue volunteers receive training, drive an RSPCA rescue vehicle and can buddy up with a friend on a shift.
