Girl Guides are getting active for animals and the RSPCA is set to be the beneficiary of all their good work, via a new program called Prepare to Care.

In partnership with Girl Guides Victoria, the RSPCA Education Department have developed Prepare to Care – practical hands on educational resource to assist their members to understand more fully the work of the RSPCA. It teaches them about how to care for their pets and companion animals and be more aware of issues surrounding the welfare of production animals.

Through this badge work we are seeking to educate and empower these young women to speak out about important animal welfare issues and advocate for change. We are in very good company over the last two years, the Girl Guides have assisted organisations such as Plan Australia and Care Australia to raise awareness and funding for human rights and now animals.

The recent “Girl Guides Say survey” ranked Animal Welfare as one of their top five global issues, for girls aged between five and thirteen years old. When it came to National Issues Girl Guides in the age brackets of 9-12, 12-14 and 14-17 years all ranked Animal Welfare as one of their top 5 National concerns, so it is clear animals matter to them.

We are so pleased to have joined forces with an organisation who believes that educating the youth of today will ensure a better world for tomorrow for all of us, including all creatures great and small.

Please contact RSPCA Education when your Guide group completes the Prepare to Care badge.  We will send you a certificate and some RSPCA goodies!
