The RSPCA in Australia is a federation, with an RSPCA branch in each state and territory and RSPCA Australia as the national body. The state and territory member Societies provide services to animals in need through their shelters and inspectorates.
RSCPA Approved Farming Scheme (AFS) works with producers, retailers and brands to improve the welfare of farm animals by reviewing farming standards and providing certification to brands that pass the requirements.
From the national office, RSPCA Australia works to influence animal welfare policy, practice and legislation across the country. They do this through various avenues, including working with government and industries, communicating, and contributing to animal welfare science, running the RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme (AFS), and working with supporters through targeted advocacy and education campaigns.
The RSPCA AFS is not-for-profit organisation and generates revenues to cover costs through licensing agreements with brands and retailers. Since FY19, RSPCA AFS has been operating at a loss and saw a $117k loss in FY21.
Designed a new pricing model which would generate revenue for RSPCA AFS to expand the standards into new areas and reduce admin burden for licensees.
