Our community project – collection for RSPCA


By Jennifer Lumsden, December 6 2018

This week, the Transition Education group visited the RSPCA at Burwood. We have been collecting goods such as towels, dog and cat food and blankets as part of a community project.

Upon arrival at the RSPCA centre we met Jane, from customer service, who helped us unload our 5 large boxes. She thanked the group on behalf of RSPCA for their hard work and said the goods would be put to good use.

We then visited the animals for adoption, cats and dogs and rabbits. The group were able to pat the animals and found the animals were well cared for and were impressed at how clean everything was.

We spoke with a volunteer who works 4 days a week, with the rabbits, and she explained to everyone what her job entails. After morning tea in the café, we toured the rest of the centre. We observed dogs of all sizes visiting the vet clinic there and the arrival of a box of abandoned kittens brought in by a member of the public.

The group all agreed on return to Marriott that the trip was worthwhile, and all thought it had been both fun and informative.
