Junior SupPawter Program

The Junior SupPawter program is an exciting opportunity for primary school aged children to get involved with RSPCA ACT and make a real difference to animals. SupPawters can learn about RSPCA animals, become a pet care expert and might even make some new animal loving friends!

Through this program we hope to engage young people with animal welfare and provide practical opportunities for them to get involved at the shelter. Our Junior SupPawters are ambassadors for animals and can help RSPCA ACT to promote quality care for animals in their own families, schools and communities. The Junior SupPawter program is also an excellent opportunity for young people who are considering a career in animal care when they are older!

Junior SupPawter Program membership costs $100.00 for a whole year of information, activities and animals including:

  • A Welcome Pack upon joining, including an ‘Adoptables’ plush pet, a welcome letter, a personalised lanyard and other merchandise
  • A hand written birthday card
