We are committed

Animals Australia is the only national animal protection organisation that actively exposes animal abuse and promotes a cruelty-free lifestyle. Our small team of experienced campaigners and investigators works tirelessly and effectively to raise public awareness, with an uncompromised vision to end the abuse of animals in Australia and beyond.

We use donations wisely

Animals Australia is known for its strategic campaign initiatives, and multi-faceted approach to fighting animal cruelty which includes tactical investigations, television exposés, attention-grabbing public awareness campaigns, and ongoing grassroots programs. Operations are conducted from one small head office which we ensure runs as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible at all times.

We act with integrity

As an incorporated organisation we also provide annual audited accounts to the Victorian Department of Justice.
