Frequently asked questions Do you bring live animals to school incursions? 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?
