About the RSPCA

RSPCA Victoria is a non-government, community-based, not-for-profit organisation whose vision is ‘ending cruelty to all animals’. We are Victoria’s best-known and most respected animal welfare organisation which promotes care and protection of animals through awareness campaigns and education programs.
