    Animal welfare charity

    An animal welfare charity is a registered charity whose principal activity is one or both of the following:

    • providing short-term direct care to animals (but not only native wildlife) that have been lost or mistreated or are without owners
    • rehabilitating orphaned, sick or injured animals (but not only native wildlife) that have been lost or mistreated or are without owners.

    If your fund does not qualify as an animal welfare charity, check our DGR table to see if another category applies.
