RSPCA op shop site to be sold

After a long and successful partnership with the local community operating an op shop in Castlemaine, RSPCA Victoria has decided to sell the former op shop premises at 86 Forest Street.
The op shop was temporarily closed last October before a decision was made to permanently close it due to under staffing. RSPCA Victoria will use the proceeds of the sale of the building to support its animal welfare work in high-need areas.
Like all RSPCA Victoria op shops, the Castlemaine store was run solely by a team of dedicated local volunteers who did a fantastic job raising vital funds for animal welfare.
We are so grateful to all the volunteers who contributed to the op shop over the years and to the wider community for supporting it – you made a real difference for the animals in Victoria.
We want to take this opportunity to thank the Castlemaine community and say that we look forward to continuing to collaborate with the Mount Alexander Animal Welfare (MAAW) organisation to promote animal welfare in your local area.
