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.

Understanding Dog Behaviour - 06 May 2017 9:00 AM

Class was as described on the profile and was definitely fun and informative! Instructors were extremely engaging and knowledgeable and answered questions we had in detail. I enjoyed the entire day and was smiling, laughing and definitely learning throughout the whole day. I highly recommend this course to those who are interesting in dog training/behaviour or new to dog training.

Pet First Aid - 09 Mar 2017 6:00 PM

I recently attended this class and found it informative and enjoyable. While only a 3-hour introduction to the topic, it provided a lot of practical advice on what to be aware of and how to deal with some common situations where pet first aid is required. I particularly enjoyed the 5 hands-on work stations where we practiced some basic first aid, with advice from the instructors. The instructors were friendly, knowledgeable and responded to questions on all manner of animal/pet first aid issues.

Caring for Cats - 18 Feb 2017 9:00 AM

A fantastic class for anyone who is thinking of having a cat join the family, particularly first time cat owners. Having owned cats for many years, it was a great class to re-fresh the basics.
