The charity i chose is rscpca.

when and where did it start? The RSPCA’s dates all the way back to 1871, when a public meeting to discuss the treatment of I'll horses in Victoria ended up forming into Australia’s first Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. After the establishment in Victoria soon followed the other states:

Tasmania in 1872;
New South Wales in 1873;
South Australia in 1875;
Queensland in 1883;
Northern territory 1955 and
Western Australia in 1892.

In 1923 the Societies were given the Royal Warrant, becoming known as the Royal Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. (RSPCA)

what does it do and where in the world does it operate?
The RSPCA is an australian community based charity that works to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection.

The RSPCA not only shelters and takes care of animals they also pick up strays or missing animals on the streets and take them back in to protection untill someone picks them up. This has happened to my dog many times an withought the RSPCA It probably would have been hit by a car or lost. So I'm very thankful for the RSPCA.

Why for the RSPCA deserve people time and money more than other charities?
The RSPCA deserves people time and money the most because people don't realise how badly animals are being treated and how unfair most of there lives are. the RSPCA is doing there best to save as many of these as they can, with our helping hand we can together we can build a better future for our fellow…...

The Rspca and the Use of Social Media for Public Relations Purposes

...effectively communicate with their publics. The NSW RSPCA demonstrates how a not-for-profit organisation can utilise several social media channels to successfully enhance and maintain their reputation as well as relating with their publics. The methods in which the NSW RSPCA uses social media to connect with their publics can be correlated with several public relations theories; Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, two of Grunig’s four Public Relations models – Public Information and Two-Way Symmetrical models, the Diffusion of Innovation Theory and the Social Learning Theory are just a few of the theories that can be applied to the use of social media for Public Relations purposes by the NSW RSPCA. The NSW Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) was founded in Sydney in 1873. The organisation receives less than 2% funding from the government, therefore relying on donations and fundraisers to effectively maintain their 40 shelters (RSPCA NSW, nd). The RSPCA have embraced the new age technology of social media, and combine their integral website with several social media channels (digitalbusiness.gov.au, 2012 [3]), the most popular of which being Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, which as of July 2013 the organisation had over 54, 000 ‘likes’ on Facebook (RSPCA NSW Facebook, nd), over 6, 000 ‘followers’ on Twitter (RSPCA NSW Twitter, nd) and over 150 subscribers and over 100, 000 channel views on YouTube (RSPCA NSW YouTube, nd).

It was set up in 1824 by Richard Martin, William Wilberforce, reverend Arthur Broom and focuses on animal welfare. It was originally founded without the royal prefix until it was granted its royal status in 1840 by their patron Queen Elizabeth the second. It was the first animal welfare charity to be founded in the world and led to a number of new laws being set; the cruelty to animals Act 1835, this banned baiting; the cruelty to animals act 1876, help to control animal experimentation; the animal protection act 1911; the animal welfare act 2006.

...RSPCA http://www.rspca.org.uk/home The RSPCA has been around for 180 years. The purpose of the RSPCA is to protect animals from cruelty and abandonment. The RSPCA looks after 1,000s of animals that have been mistreated by their owners, and look for new homes for these abused animals. The RSPCA was founded in 1824 in a London coffee shop. The RSPCA is the first animal welfare charity. It was originally called the SPCA which stood for ‘Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ but was changed in 1840 when Queen Victoria gave permission to add the royal R making them, from then onwards the RSPCA. Two years before the RSPCA was founded the ‘Martins act’ was introduced, this act was the first ever animal welfare law. This law meant it forbade ‘the cruel and improper treatment of cattle.’ There was another new act made in 1835 called the ‘Peace Act.’ This new act meant that the prohibition of cruelty to animals was not extended to; ‘bear baiting’ and ‘cock fighting,’ ‘dogs and other domestic animals’ and this new act insisted on better ‘standards in slaughter houses,’ to create as less pain for the animals as they could. The RSPCA fights many labs about the cruelty to animals for testing products, in a careless manner. There are now Laws for lab animals, the abolition of fur farming in the UK, ban of fox hunting with dogs and the animal welfare act. The RSPCA is a founded company which recues and rehabilitates animals, which have been poorly cared for or even......

...Two Business on our doorstep – Continued P3 and P4 I will carry on looking at the 2 businesses; Asda and RSPCA. I will be describing the business organisation, an explanation of the style of the organisation within the business and how it helps them to fulfil their purpose. An organisational structure enables a business to meet their purposes, it divides up the work and establishes lines of control and community. Dividing up work allows a clear understanding of who is doing what. The organisational structure is often a chain of command or line of control and sets out important aspects of how communication takes place. The organisational structure controls organisational activities to avoid conflict and individuals making decisions. The structure depends on the organisations objectives, purpose and strategy. The top layer of the structure usually has the most power and control of the businesses decisions.[1] There are several different organisational structures, these include flat, hierarchical and matrix. They all are in place to make sure that the business is set out in a clear way and is easier to see who is above who. The difference between hierarchical and flat structure is that there may only be two or three levels in a flat structure because they are designed for small businesses like a local hairdressers. [2]The matrix structure is where the employees have dual reporting relationships, generally to both a functional manager and a product manager. It is not set......

...Unit 1 - Task 1 - P1 The two businesses that I have chosen to research are Tesco’s and RSPCA. A business can be grouped into 4 different types of sectors, they are; public sector, private sector, voluntary and not-for-profit businesses. Businesses make profit as they are in charge of their own internal and external costs. This business could either be as small as a corner shop, or as large as Tesco. Public sector businesses are owned and controlled by the government. These businesses don’t have to make profit, but this is always monitored so they can control how they spend their money. Tesco is a business that is in the private sector and also a profit making business and a merchandise retailer. It’s the biggest private sector employer in the UK. It offers good and reasonable pay and benefits for all jobs. Whether as managers or assistants I stores. It's been grouped in the private sector as the business makes profit.

There are 8 different types of stakeholders which are: employees, suppliers, customers, trade unions, employer association, government, owners, and the local and national communities. My two contrasting businesses are RSPCA and Argos. Stakeholders- Employees- want to seek security of employment and also be able to get promotions and a good pay. The employees also want their work to provide them with a livelihood. They also want to work for a good business which they can be proud to say they work there and of what they do. Owners- owners of any business have an aim to make their business rise; they are in charge and want to make a profit. Owners can be sole traders, partnerships or they have shareholders which all need to succeed in the business. Their business may be their life and livelihood because they have taken their time and effort building up the business. The owners take the principle risk especially if it’s a sole trader or partnership because if they don’t make the business work they will lose everything they have put into it. Owners are said to be the most important stakeholders and it is said it will affect them the most. Suppliers- The suppliers have an interest in the companies they supply because they need guaranteed work and money so they can continue making goods to supply. The suppliers want steady......
