Having a pet can be an exciting and rewarding experience, but there are several hidden dangers present in your household that you should be aware of.
Join us on a journey through the average Queensland household and ensure that your pet is safe at home!
From the kitchen to the backyard, four areas of the home will list five items commonly found in that environment for you to rank. These safety hazards could be plants, ingredients, and products that can be found in any home.
Keep an open mind about what could be potentially toxic and rank them from most to least dangerous.
As part of our mission to help you identify dangers in your home, you’ll receive a FREE Hidden Dangers Guide upon completion. Depending on your results, you could even enter the draw to win a $500 shopping gift card!

A deep love of animals, from native wildlife to beloved domestic pets, drives everything we do at RSPCA QLD. As part of our mission to change the lives of both animals and humans, we seek to educate the public through programs like our Hidden Dangers Guide, to ensure that no animal should suffer.
Over the past year, we have received over 17,000 cruelty complaints and cared for around 51,000 animals across Queensland. Every day we see animals who have suffered neglect, abuse, abandonment, and illness and who have nowhere else to turn. We can only do this thanks to the support of Queenslanders as well as the dedicated staff and volunteer teams.
We want to protect your pets from pain and suffering. On completion of this activity, we’ll organise our free Hidden Dangers Guide to be delivered to you. By being aware of what the hidden dangers are in your kitchen you could save your pet's life!
Now that we’ve covered the kitchen, it’s time to move outside!
We can have as many as 2,500 animals in our care centres, in a day, across Queensland. Keep your pet out of the care centre by consulting your Hidden Dangers Guide when it arrives.Now it’s time to head to the living room and enjoy a movie with your animal friend.
RSPCA QLD works around the clock to care for every animal that comes through our doors. We provide these services at no cost, but need community support to do so.
