Investigate Neglect & Abuse

Project Hope receives and acts on information about equine neglect or abuse in Victoria. Our trained PHHWV Representatives go out to suspected situations of equine neglect or abuse. We have no powers except to give help based on our knowledge of horses and their needs.

Note: RSPCA Victoria Inspectors have a range of legislative powers to investigate cases of animal cruelty, enter property and seize animals. In the majority of cases, RSPCA Inspectors seek to resolve animal welfare issues through education and advice.
