The RSPCA was first established in 1871 to improve the welfare of horses in Melbourne. In 2021, we marked 150th years of caring for and protecting animals with the support of community members like you.
Our supporters remain the lifeblood of our organisation. Despite the strides made in animal welfare across Victoria in our history, we know that there is still more to accomplish and together with our supporters, we’re committed to achieving our vision of ending cruelty to animals. All of RSPCA Victoria’s work is made possible by our generous donors and we’ve been shaped and supported by a passionate and kind community, motivated by their love for animals and dedicated to their welfare.
