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.
