December 2017 Corporate Supporters

December 2017 Corporate Supporters

Corporate Support Days with RSPCA NSW are an amazing opportunity for any company’s staff to strengthen their relationships as a team. Through an interactive experience, teams are able to help with the maintenance of the grounds and the shelter animals’ socialisation skills. It’s a practical way to learn, team build and show care for our shelter animals. In December, staff from Spectre Group and Westpac took part in the immense effort it takes to run a shelter to help the neglected, homeless and unwanted animals.

Scentre Group

Scentre Group has generously visited three times in the last month! Their team took part in an education session with one of our animal inspectors and learnt all about the rescue work we are doing in the community. They worked hard in the stables and pocket pet area, cleaning out animal enclosures for our resident bunnies.

They took part in gardening projects, cuddled many fuzzy kittens and spent some time pampering the adult cats. The dogs were thrilled to be bathed, walked and played with, showing their appreciation with happy licks and plenty of tail wagging. Thank you for all your compassion and support. We look forward to seeing you in 2017!

The amazing Westpac team has visited five times throughout the past year, bringing along gifts for our shelter animals and putting them under our Christmas tree. After an education session, they were split into groups and helped clean out animal enclosures in the stables and pocket pet area. They spent some special one-on-one time with our graceful cats and played with our kittens who were absolutely brimming with energy.

The shelter dogs all received a good walk and bath, followed up by a cuddling session in their kennels. The Westpac team also took a behind the-scenes tour of our veterinary hospital, where they witnessed animals receiving life-changing treatment. Thank you Westpac for being so supportive last year, and we can’t wait to see you again!

Want to get involved?

Volunteers at RSPCA Corporate Support Days learn about the work RSPCA NSW does and get a guided behind-the-scenes tour of the shelter. And as well as bonding with your team, you get the chance to see firsthand the impact you are having on the lives of the animals at the RSPCA. And of course, you’ll be rewarded with some much-deserved one-on-one time with our animal residents. If this sounds like something that would get your team’s tails wagging, then contact us today to make a booking.

Corporate Support Days are now available at the Central Coast, Hunter and Sydney Shelters. To book one for your workplace, please contact:
