What We Do

The RSPCA is a community based charity that works to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection.

RSPCA Australia is a Federation of eight independent State and Territory RSPCA bodies called member Societies. RSPCA member Societies do much of the hands on work traditionally associated with the RSPCA such as the operation of shelters and the Inspectorate plus community education and fundraising.

RSPCA ACT offers a range of services to the Canberra community and surrounding region, including: healthy, loving animals available for adoption; a free lost and found service; animal cruelty inspectorate; Canberra’s only licensed wildlife care facility; retail shop; dog and puppy training classes; cat boarding; veterinary clinic; pet care advice; volunteering opportunities; and programs to assist vulnerable members of the community.
