Animal Action project for cared for children in County Durham

The RSPCA is running an Animal Action Project in County Durham in February for cared for children aged 5-16 in North East England.

The aim of the project is to promote compassion for animals, help young people build positive relationships with animals and stay safe around dogs, as well as developing children's understanding about animals' needs and feelings.

Interactive and engaging workshops

The Animal Action Fun Days are on the 19th February for primary aged children or 20th February for secondary aged children at Chester-le-Street RSPCA Felledge Animal Centre in County Durham and we have a fantastic, interactive and enjoyable day planned with RSPCA Inspectors, Education staff, Animal Care Assistants and Dog Behaviour experts. Children need to be accompanied by their carers and they will be able to meet some of the very special animals which come into RSPCA care, and learn about their journeys from cruelty case to finding their forever homes.

There may be an opportunity for some children to take part in some additional sessions. More information will be available on the day. 

This is a small pilot project and places are strictly limited.
