RSPCA Victoria is a non-government, independent charity.

We rely on donations and community support to generate 90% of the funds required to carry out our work protecting animals from cruelty and neglect.

Sadly, we know that there are many more animals that are suffering. Animal cruelty doesn’t stop, we received more than 10,700 reports of cruelty to animals in Victoria in the last financial year alone.

We’re determined to do more than we ever have to stop animal cruelty and even though we’re the best at what we do, right now, we’re stretched to our limit. We simply don’t have enough people or equipment to rescue and care for every animal who needs us.


Every donation received by RSPCA Victoria will go towards the resources we need to achieve our goal of stopping animal cruelty.

Donations received will help train inspectors, provide life-saving equipment and treatment, care for animals in our shelter and most importantly, find loving homes for the defenceless animals who have been victims of horrible cruelty.


Last financial year, RSPCA Victoria received 17,170 animals into our care including 5,185 dogs, 9,512 cats, and 2,473 other animals including wildlife, livestock, horses and small animals. More than 3,774 animals required time in volunteer foster care to recover (more than ever before!), and 9,667 animals were adopted to new loving homes in the same period.

Our inspectorate received and investigated 10,745 reports of cruelty with each report often relating to numerous individual offences. From these reports, our Inspectors brought 1,480 seized and surrendered animals into our care, an increase of 23% from the previous year.
