Incursions

RSPCA ACT is excited to offer Incursions for Primary schools, Out of School Hours Care, Childcare and Community Centres. Incursions are perfect for larger groups who are unable to physically visit the shelter. Through these sessions, we aim to promote empathy for animals, understanding of the role of the RSPCA, and an understanding of how to care for pets with respect and love.

Each Incursion session includes:

  • A PowerPoint presentation that shows the participants our shelter, some of the stories of our current residents and other general information about RSPCA
  • Play based experiences such as vet or microchip checks on realistic plush animals
  • Opportunity to create enrichment activities for shelter animals. This may include kitten toys, dog food enrichment, mouse tunnels, or more! Activities will depend on the needs of the shelter, interests of the group and available resources

All sessions are facilitated by our Learning and Development Coordinator, and all resources are provided. Incursion sessions run for approximately 2 hours and are appropriate for groups of up to 50 participants.

We charge a flat rate of $300 for Incursions; this includes preparation and travel time, the guidance of our RSPCA educator for the session as well as all materials for activities.
