Get a chance to chat to an RSPCA Vet and Vet Nurse, go on a behind the scenes tour of our RSPCA Veterinary Hospital and learn how you can keep your pets healthy in this two hour session.

Meet an RSPCA dog trainer where you can learn how to teach your pet some new tricks and ask any dog training questions that have been on the tip of your tongue! We’ll look closely at dog behaviour and even chat about our training our feline friends.

Did you know that RSPCA NSW has the largest animal enforcement unit in the state? With more than 30 inspectors on the road investigating animal cruelty each day, they rescue animals from all sorts of sticky situations and help countless people better care for their pets. Join us to hear some of their stories first hand, from heroic rescues to some amazing before and after cases.

No matter what (COVID) challenges are thrown our way, the work at RSPCA never stops. Come along to see what it takes to help thousands of animals every year and tour an RSPCA shelter – you never know which furry friend you’ll meet!

Whether you have a pet or want to adopt a pet, this session will be a fun way to learn about everything you need to look after a pet. We’ll go on a scavenger hunt and chat about all things to do with keeping our furry, feathery and scaley friends happy and healthy!

In RSPCA NSW’s 150 year history, we’ve learnt a thing or two about animals and how to help them. What’s the average life expectancy for a Staffordshire Terrier Dog? Do cats really have nine lives? Can a horse sleep while standing up? Bring a pencil and paper and join us for an hour of trivia fun where we throw some crazy and curly questions your way and maybe even have a laugh or two.

Our organisation works in each state and territory of Australia to provide services to animals through our shelters and inspectorates. Learn about what RSPCA does in NSW to help animals and then join our friends at the RSPCA Education Barn at the RSPCA Victoria Headquarters in Burwood East. We will meet their resident farm animals and hear about their rescue stories.
