YMCA + RSPCA = a mouthful of letters!

RSPCA NSW Education Officers Zoe and Eva went along to visit the Vacation Care group at Bankstown YMCA yesterday and were met by a sea of curious faces.

"It's my favourite sight" says Eva about the enthusiasm of the YMCA kids. It makes for a great opportunity to discuss responsible pet ownership and allow the kids to a chance to ask those questions about their pets that they normally would not have had answered.

One good question, coming from an empathetic viewpoint. was in reference to how much pain an animal would feel during the implantation of a microchip. That was a hard one to answer as each animal would have a different experience, but it the feeling would compare with what is felt during a vaccination.

If you know of a group of curious kids or adults even, we would love to hear from you to book a visit! Email education@rspcansw.org.au or call 9782 4460
