We put a stop to it!

The RSPCA NSW Education Team started their July School Holiday Program on Monday and we were pleased when things came to a stop! A stop to boredom for children and youth and a stop to animal cruelty for society!

Okay, so we're a little way from the whole of society, but with all three days completely booked out, it's just a matter of time before the message gets to every corner of our State.

Kids aged 8-11 years, 12-14 years and then 15-17 years came to the RSPCA Sydney Shelter to spend their day with Inspectors Matt French and Claire Kendall, Education Officers Eva, Steph and Zoe and the wonderful  volunteers Rachel, Kez, Jess and Bree.

The theme of the day was a familiar tagline: "All Creatures Great and Small". As although the Shelter is home to predominantly companions animals, we should all care about and protect the welfare of all animals - even those pesky pigeons who enjoy keeping us company at the Shelter!

The feedback from the three sessions so far have been awesome! The kids are loving their time spent with the animals, assisting in their day to day care and can't stop raving about their five minutes of fame as an RSPCA Inspector.

Stay tuned for some 'healthy' fun next week...

Whatcha lookin' at?!

Keeping it clean for the rabbits :)
