Shelter Dogs get a treat & learn how to sit!

Yesterday the Education Team was delighted to host a visit by a group of kids from Youth off the Streets. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the visit which started with a tour of the Sydney RSPCA shelter and veterinary hospital. This was followed by a presentation on RSPCA and interaction time with some of the shelter dogs available for adoption, Tim, Ellie, Hunter, Pumpkin and Slick!

A lesson on how to meet a dog and where to pat it safely for the first time was given to the kids. This was followed by some fun playtime with some of the RSPCA shelter dogs. With a bag full of doggy treats, the kids learnt how to teach a dog to sit using the treats and positive reinforcement.

Thank you to the wonderful staff at Youth off the Streets for bringing the kids to our shelter. We hope you had fun! See you next time.

Here are just three of the dogs that took part in the visit yesterday. Would you like to adopt one of these dogs? Please visit
