Wednesday 7th April: I Speak Dog (7 - 12 year olds)

Have you always wanted to learn the language of dogs?  We can help you decode the body language of dogs and build better fur-endships.    

Friday 9th April: Welcome Back to the Barn ( 7 - 12 year olds)

Did you know that some sheep wag their tails?   Our farm animals are looking forward to finally meeting you face to face and snout to hand!  The most exciting part of their week is snack time with visitors.

Monday 12th April: Wacky Whiskers (7 - 12 year olds)

Get ready for some feline fun!  Our education cats Archie, Wanda and Alfie love to show off as they run around their safe play space.  Let’s make toys to keep cats busy not bored.  Are cats the only creatures with whiskers?

Wednesday 14th April: RSPCA Vet Rescue ( 7 - 12 year olds)

Calling all aspiring vets and animal nurses.  Get your questions ready for our RSPCA Vet, learn pet first aid techniques and how to respond in an animal emergency.

Friday 16th April: Junior Inspector for a day (strictly* 10yrs – 14yrs)

RSPCA Victoria’s Inspectors are just like animal police.  They investigate more than 10,000 cases of cruelty and neglect each year.  Join us to learn about this brave role from a real life inspector. 

*Note the age range of 10 – 14yrs due to some sensitive content.

18 April 2021 • RSPCA Holiday Program

I always enjoy coming to the RSPCA holiday programs. I met some of the animals that live at the RSPCA and the top inspector came to speak to us about the important work she does. The staff are very friendly too!


16 April 2021 • RSPCA Holiday Program

Interesting talk by investigator, and had fun feeding the ponies, cows and sheep. Suitable for 10-12yo.


14 April 2021 • RSPCA Holiday Program

My son always enjoys the holiday program at the RSPCA, meeting wonderful animals and learning about how to care for them, with the bonus of meeting new friends for a day! I have recommended the RSPCA program to many other parents.
