RSPCA ACT celebrating its 60th birthday with a week of activities, and would like to extend an invitation to all members of the Canberra Community and surrounding region to join them during the week of the 21st until the 26th of September.
Activities will include a kids colouring competition, adoption specials for animals and a yearbook where individuals can share images of their adopted animals from the Weston shelter on RSPCA ACT’s Facebook page.
RSPCA ACT CEO Tammy Ven Dange is excited about the celebration.
“Sixty years is a long time, and we certainly have seen substantial change during that time both as an organisation, as well as in the welfare of animals here in the ACT,” Tammy said.
“We are extremely grateful that we can celebrate this major milestone with the rest of the Canberra community through a week long schedule of fun and engaging activities.”
During this week, RSPCA ACT will also be hosting a special forum where a diverse range of individuals from the community will share their visions and goals for the next 60 years of animal welfare in the ACT and surrounding regions.
Speakers will include Minister Shane Rattenbury, ACT Rescue & Foster President Wendy Parsons, Animal Defenders Office Director Mike Rosalky, Caroola Farm Co-Owner Penny Kothe and ACT Wildlife Vice President Martin Lind. Members of the public are encouraged to register their interest for this free event through RSPCA ACT’s website to secure a seat.
