Annual General Meeting.

Transition to a Public Company Limited by Guarantee

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Western Australia

ACN: 626 609 587

In accordance with the resolution passed by members at the Extraordinary General Meeting held on 1 March 2018, the RSPCA WA has transitioned to a public company limited by guarantee under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth).  It was registered by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission on 24 July 2018 and the new Constitution came into effect on that date. A copy of the Constitution can be found here.  

Clause 23 of the Constitution relates to the RSPCA WA’s first annual general meeting after registration as a company.

The Board is developing policies and processes to give effect to the new Constitution and the change of regulatory regime. Relevant information will be advised via the RSPCA WA website.

RSPCA WA continues to uphold the original objectives since it was first established in 1892, including to:

  • Promote animal welfare and kindness to animals
  • Prevent or suppress cruelty to animals
