The welfare of our shelter animals is paramount, so we do not bring live animals to our incursions. We do use life-size plush animals to complement our messages. Do you charge fees for your incursions? We don’t have set fees for our incursions, but as a charity we do ask for a donation. This may be monetary such as a gold coin per student or a collection of items for our shelter animals such a bedding, treats or toys. How can I get in contact with the RSPCA NSW Education team?
