When the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission register an organisation, its charity ‘subtypes’ are also publicly registered.
These reflect the category of that organisation’s charitable purpose, which is what its activities will work towards achieving.
Each subtype has a specific meaning under the law. The subtype for discussion today is:
🔵 Preventing or relieving the suffering of animals
🔵 Some examples of charities that prevent or relieve animal suffering include:
🦍 Animal protection societies
🦘 Animal refuges and shelters
🐝 Organisations that protect endangered species
🐨 Animal hospitals
🐾 Scientific bodies studying animal behaviour
