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.

22 January 2021 • RSPCA Holiday Program

It’s was a fantastic and super fun experience. I got to learn so much about all the animals including rabbits guinea pigs dogs cats and even horses and goats. Everything that you need to know is included and the adults are super kind and they answer all your questions and help you learn about any thing you want. They also do fun activities with the animals there that you get to observe and also be involved in and you get to learn to learn how to make enrichment toys for pets that you can easily make at home and they are very good for your pets as well. It was a great experience because I got to learn how to be a responsible pet owner and I also learnt some things that I would be able to tell other people so that they can help there pets too. I also got to see lots of animals and I could observe their personalities and characteristics which was very helpful and interesting to learn about. Overall it was an amazing experience that I learnt so so much from and I would definitely love to come back next time it is on because it was very educational but also incorporated all the important information and that made it very informative and very enjoyable too! Thank you RSPCA for providing this great opportunity!

The RSPCA online holiday programs were such fun! I loved how we got to meet different animals on different days and we stuck to the one topic. It was great how when making enrichment toys for our pets they included everyone’s animals not just one animal. It was great fun learning about how RSPCA works and how they look after all animals, they are such kind people and they would include everyone in conversations on the zooms. I now know a lot more facts about animals and amazingly the learning also a fun part!
