About RSPCA Victoria

We are a non-government, community based charity that works to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection. RSPCA Victoria was established in Melbourne in 1871. Since this time, the RSPCA has become Australia's leading animal welfare charity.

Our community services include work in education, advocacy, animal care and protection. In Victoria, we operate nine animal Adoption Care Centres and one community pet care centre, providing refuge and care to more than 20,000 animals every year. 

 As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on community support to care for 'all creatures great and small'.  More than 90% of our funding is due to the generous support of the Victorian community.

Understanding Dog Behaviour - 13 Aug 2017 9:00 AM

I've lived with dogs for 50 years and I learned a huge amount on this course. It was fun, logically presented and thought provoking. The presenters were knowledgeable and generous and their dogs were the stars of the show! Highly recommend for people new to dogs and for people who want to enrich the life of their best 4-legged friend.
