RSPCA ACT, Project Safe
Project SAFE stands for Support for Animals and Families in Emergencies and is designed to be a safe haven and emergency short-term care for the pets of victims fleeing domestic violence. Animals that enter the Shelter under this program also receive a full vet check, vaccinations; as well as have other immediate medical needs met. While dogs and cats are the most common pet in this program, we have also helped other small animals.

Animal Defenders Office
The ADO provides free advice on how the law affects animals and animal advocates, and how it can be used to protect them.  We also take an active role in law reform and policy formulation regarding animals and provide information materials designed both to increase awareness of animal protection issues and to empower the community to engage in public decision-making affecting animals.
