Animals Australia are pretty good for the sort of thing you are looking for. Don't go WIRES - they are problematic. Cat Protection Society, years back when I was volunteering for them, were pretty good, but I've not heard what they are like these days. I'd vouch for Animal Liberation if you like the kind of "out there" yelling in the street activism, or Sea Shepherd. But you won't go wrong with Animals Australia.
