How are we feeling today?

Pretty good, thank you very much!

With the RSPCA NSW School Holiday Program coming to an end, the Team are again amazed at the calibre of the participants they have had the priviledge of meeting over the past two weeks.

From participants enthusiastic enough to attend each week to those who have travelled far and wide to be with us (that's right Emma, you've set the record with your journey from Dubbo!), the Team were eager to share their wealth of knowledge, experience and skills in the world of animal welfare.

The second week of the program delved into how we can be responsible for the physical and mental wellbeing of our animals with a focus on veterinary science and positive reinforcement training. The participants were surprised to see Peaches the Pig make an appearance but it was the perfect starting point to think about how we can better meet the physical and mental needs our of sows, many who live in sow stalls in intensively farmed systems (click here for more info).

Thanks to Jana, Billy and Sam who popped by to assist in the day's activities - I think they had as much fun as the kids!

Good 'drop' Sam!

Jana is basking in all the attention!
