Additionally, the RSPCA works with government and industry to establish standards for animal care.
“Jetpets has assisted RSPCA Victoria with transporting dogs and cats for several years now. The welfare, safety and care of our animals is of paramount importance to us and we trust Jetpets when our animals need to be rehomed interstate. RSPCA Victoria is grateful for the support of Jetpets in helping us to end cruelty to all animals.” – Dr. Liz Walker, CEO of RSPCA Victoria
