Animal Management visits the RSPCA

Animal Management visits the RSPCA

As part of their Level 3 qualification in Animal Management, our Sixth Form students have recently enjoyed a visit to the RSPCA at Felledge Animal Centre in Chester-le-Street.

The day began with a presentation and demonstration which highlighted the crucial work that the RSPCA do on a daily basis to protect unwanted and mistreated animals in the UK. Then came a tour of the cattery and kennels to visit some of the animals what were being cared for and an opportunity to witness the procedures that take place in practical animal husbandry in a work place.

Some of our animal-loving students found it hard to hear about the conditions that the animals had been subjected to before they were rescued, but it is fair to say that for many, the experience has further developed their passion for working with animals.

As a result of the trip, a number of our students have expressed an interest in pursuing a career within the RSPCA, or one of the many other worthwhile animal charities in the UK, as they felt they could help to make a difference.
