About RSPCA Australia

The National Office of the RSPCA is based in Deakin, Canberra. It provides a focus for all the State and Territory RSPCA organisations in the more strategic areas of influence on animal welfare – particularly in working with the Federal Government and other national organisations or companies that rely on RSPCA Approved certification


Benefits of Working with RSPCA Australia

As you might expect, the RSPCA is an organisation of people committed to animal welfare and this flows through into the type of workplace we all work hard to create – one that is supportive, challenging and friendly – and one driven by strong values of compassion, courage, integrity, knowledge and tenacity. We work hard to protect animals and meet the needs of our stakeholders, but we don’t put unreasonable pressure on ourselves to meet meaningless demands or targets. We are a great group of people!

And of course, we have dogs in the office.
