Be an animal protector

Litter, pollution and traffic are just some of the things that are dangerous to animals. However, as people cause these dangers, we can also help to protect animals from them. Spot dangers to animals in your local area and think about how they can be avoided.

Build a hedgehog shack

Sadly, hedgehogs are running out of places to live and can get hurt on busy roads or by chemicals used in farming. We can all make a difference by attracting them to our gardens or local parks, so why not build a Hedgehog Shack where they can hibernate in winter?

Be a food hero

Did you know you can help farm animals have a happy life by choosing the right kind of food? If you buy pork, beef, eggs, chicken and turkey with the RSPCA Assured logo, you'll know the animals have been kept in places that follow our strict rules, and that they've had a happy life too.
