As an RSPCA ambassador, the 26-year-old will wear an |Eeyore onesie this Wednesday to help raise funds for animals in need.

The fundraiser is part of RSPCA’s Spring into Action for Animals awareness week, which runs until October 12.

Ms Tracey said she had always loved animals and had a 15-year-old cat who lost his tail in a car accident more than 10 years ago.

‘All money raised will go directly to the RSPCA and be used to look after animals in need and stop animal cruelty,’ she said.

‘I want to raise as much money as possible and awareness for this great cause.’

In its first year, RSPCA WA community engagement executive manager Maree Daniels said Onesie Wednesday was a fun and easy way to get involved in supporting the RSPCA.

‘Only 6 per cent of our funding comes from the State Government, so we rely heavily on the support of the animal loving community to continue caring for animals in need,’ Ms Daniels said.

‘Fundraising doesn’t get any easier than this ” dare someone else or set yourself a target of funds to raise for the privilege of wearing some fun free dress while raising awareness about the RSPCA’s work in improving animal welfare.’
