Corporates in April 2017

Corporates in April 2017

A Corporate Support Day with RSPCA NSW are amazing interactive experiences. Teams help out at the shelter and spend special time with the animals. It’s a great way for teams to bond while caring for animals in need. In April, staff from Canterbury League Club, Cuscal and Optiver lent their valuable time to make our shelter a better place.

Canterbury League Club - 15.04.2017

Canterbury League Club volunteered with us for the very first time, kindly bringing toys, treats and pet food for our animals. In the morning, the team heard an educational talk from an RSPCA inspector and cleaned out the bunny hutches.

After trimming back some very overgrown trees, they paid a visit to the famous Piggy Minaj. The team washed and walked the dogs, spending one-on-one time with them in the kennels. They ended the day with a special tour of the RSPCA Veterinary Hospital, complete with a look at several cats and kittens being desexed.

It’s always great to have enthusiastic local companies involved with RSPCA NSW, and we can’t wait to have Canterbury League Club back next year!

Cuscal - 07.04.2017

With Cuscal’s second visit, they immediately got stuck into their work and helped clean all the cages in the Kitten Haven. The bunny and guinea pig hutches were given the same treatment and our pocket pets are definitely grateful! In the afternoon, they walked and washed the dogs, followed by a play session with the cats and kittens.

Thank you, Cuscal, for all your smiles and enthusiasm! Your kind support means so much and we look forward to your third visit!

Optiver - 19.04.2017

For their very first morning with us, Optiver met an RSPCA inspector and made scent spray bottles to provide enrichment for our dogs. The team sprayed the kennels with different scents, including lavender and peppermint. The dogs love the interesting smells and spent hours sniffing the different scents! The Optiver team also cleaned out the Kitten Haven and bunny hutches, making sure to play with all the furry residents along the way. In the afternoon, they washed and walked our eager shelter dogs, before finishing off the day with a cuddle from Piggy Minaj.

Thank you, Optiver – we’ll see you next time!

And of course, you’ll be rewarded with some much-deserved one-on-one time with our animal residents.
