Application Form

The Humane Charities List is an online listing of health-related charities that do not fund or engage in animal-based research. This is the only reference guide of its kind in Australia and inclusion is free. When you complete the form below, we will review your submission to confirm your details and advise you of the outcome within a few days.

A health charity is a charity that directly addresses human health-related diseases,  disorders,  and/or  conditions.  Approaches  may  include  but  are  not  limited  to:  biomedical research; physical care; mental/emotional support; prevention; and/or educational resources. It means a  person,  corporation,  partnership,  or  other  organisation  with  legal  existence,  including,  without limitation, its subsidiaries, affiliates, divisions, agents, and employees.

You only need to apply once to become a Humane Charity. However, if your status changes you will need to advise us as soon as possible.

Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required.
Our organisation does hereby certify that as of this date, it does not conduct, commission, or in any way fund experiments involving non-human animals, as defined below, and will not do so in the future.

Experiments on non-human animals means any research of any sort using, in whole or in part, living or dead animals, including, without limitation, fish, amphibians, reptiles,  birds,  insects,  nonhuman  mammals,  or  other  species,  except  for  the  following,  which  are considered humane and acceptable: (1) naturalistic studies, in which animals are observed, without interference, in their natural setting; or (2)  experimental  treatments  in  animals  who  need  them  due  to  clinical  illness,  without  the  specific expectation or intention of application to related human diseases, and who are not bred for research purposes.
