The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Victoria (RSPCA Victoria) is a non-government, community-based charity that works to prevent cruelty to animals. A member of RSPCA Australia since 1871, RSPCA Victoria is an integral part of Australia’s leading animal welfare charity.
As a not-for-profit organisation, community support is the lifeblood of all operations. More than 90% of our funding comes from the generous support of the Victorian community.
Across the state, RSPCA Victoria’s community services are undertaken by specific teams; our Inspectorate, animal care centres, vet clinics, advocacy, community outreach and education. Find out more about the important work done by the RSPCA Victoria teams below.
Animal Care Centres
RSPCA Victoria shelters care for approximately 14,000 animals per year. Lost, abandoned and seized animals that find themselves at a shelter are often afraid and in poor health, so the team works tirelessly to rehabilitate and rehome as many as possible.
