Corporates in June Posted on July 10, 2017 Corporate Support Days with RSPCA NSW are a unique experience, perfect for growing, learning and helping those who need it most. Teams help with the maintenance of the shelter and socialise with the animals. In June, staff from Charter Hall, Groupon, Robert Half and KPMG lent a helping hand for all creatures great and small. Charter Hall | 02.06.2017 On a crisp Friday morning, Charter Hall kindly returned to the RSPCA Sydney Shelter to lend their hands and time. To start, the team took part in an education session to learn more about our community programs, such as Living Ruff and Safe Beds for Pets. After helping wash and fold animal blankets, they thoroughly cleaned out the duck and bunny enclosures. Trees were pruned, and the dogs were walked and played with. Don’t worry, the cats weren’t neglected and received plenty of cuddles before the day was done! Thank you so much for your kind support, Charter Hall. We look forward to having you back next time!

It didn’t stop raining all day, but they didn’t complain once and got stuck right into the activities! After an education session about our community work, they got their arts and crafts on by making enrichment toys for our dogs and dog bandanas for an upcoming community day. Afterwards, they armed themselves with cleaning equipment and transformed the duck aviary, bunny hutches and chicken enclosures! When the team began walking the dogs, the rain decided to pelt down without mercy! So, they moved to the kennels and spent special one-on-one time in there. The day was finished off with the cuddling of cats and a tour of the RSPCA Sydney Veterinary Hospital (they witnessed a dental surgery and desexing, too). Thank you so much for braving the weather, Groupon! We can’t wait for you to volunteer again! View their photos here. Robert Half | 17.06.2017 The Robert Half team visited our RSPCA Central Coast Shelter and started off with a quick education session, learning all about the work we’re doing in the community. Afterwards, they helped clean out the bunny hutches, duck enclosures and cat and dog bowls. They even changed out the kitty litter trays, too! The Robert Half team then prepared food for our resident bunnies, chopping up plenty of vegetables! With all the rain, there was a huge backlog of washing to be done. So, the team kindly washed, dried and folded all of the blankets and towels for our animals. They also prepped all of the Kongs and filled them for the dogs. The team then moved onto grooming the senior cats, playing with the kittens and walking all of the dogs. Thank you so much, Robert Half! See you next time! View their photos here. KPMG | 23.06.2017 Our friends from KPMG come back to the shelter! They have volunteered several times and we are so grateful for their support. The KMPG team kindly brought donations of toys, treats and fresh vegetables for our animals, too! After a session of learning all about our Inspectorate, they helped pack Cupcake Day fundraising kits and made doggy bandanas for an upcoming community day. The team also cleaned out the chicken, duck and rabbit enclosures! They then walked the dogs, and cuddled the cats and kittens. The day was finished off with a tour of the hospital, where they witnessed a mother dog and her tiny newborn puppies being cared for! Your compassion and hard work are inspiring. Thank you, KPMG!

The team planted the veggies they brought, helping us grow as food for our bunnies instead of buying them each week! The team helped clean out the animal enclosures in the stables, making sure the bunnies, guinea pigs and chicken homes were spick and span. After feeding our resident pig, the team walked the dogs and played with them in their kennels. In the afternoon, they cuddled the cats and kittens, toured the RSPCA Sydney Veterinary and witnessed a Rottweiler getting desexed! Thank you, Camilla! We’ll see you again next time!
