Likely to be a membership badge of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Junior Branch), Adelaide. The name SPCA for this branch was used 1875-1936.
The Adelaide branch of the SPCA was formed in 1875 soon after the establishment of the first branch in Victoria in 1871. The Adelaide branch received royal patronage in 1937 when the King granted the use of the prefix 'Royal' allowing the society to use the name it still has today, the RSPCA.
