RSPCA NSW runs courses about animal care and welfare for all age groups.


Education is pivotal to RSPCA NSW’s mission of preventing cruelty to animals. It plays a crucial role in raising awareness, fostering compassion, and empowering individuals to advocate for animal welfare.

Every person, regardless of age or background, has the power to make a significant difference in the lives of animals. This begins by acquiring knowledge about their welfare and actively advocating for their rights.

The RSPCA NSW Education Team recognises the importance of education in nurturing a society that values and protects all animals. To support this vision, we offer a comprehensive range of education programs and resources tailored for children, young people, teachers, and educators alike.

The RSPCA NSW Education Team have developed engaging material, designed to instil empathy and understanding towards animals. These resources encompass interactive workshops, educational games, and informative presentations that encourage children to develop a deep sense of responsibility and respect for all living creatures.

Through these multifaceted education programs, RSPCA NSW envisions a future where every individual possesses the knowledge, empathy, and skills needed to ensure the well-being of all creatures great and small.
