following consultation with each state RSPCA. View our policies on:
Following release of an RSPCA
policy, position papers, guidelines and codes of practice are often
issued by the RSPCA to offer additional information. If available, these
documents should always be reviewed in conjunction with any RSPCA
policy. For more information on RSPCA policy, please visit the RSPCA Australia Knowledgebase.
