Part of our aim as a charity is to promote knowledge of cat care, and responsible ownership. We do this by:
1. Visiting schools and giving tours at our centre.
2. Posting useful information on social media sites and our website
3. Talking to our customers and supporters when they arrive at the centre and over the phone
4. Advising on settling in information during our chats with adopters
5. Presenting information at street collections and fundraising events
6. Distributing informative handouts and leaflets
Classroom talks are a great way to get children interested in cat care and improving their knowledge on the pets they may have at home. We believe by educating a younger audience they are more likely to become responsible pet owners in the future.
When visiting schools we can take along information on boards to present to the children, fun cat quizzes and goodies for the children to keep. It is an interactive experience for the kids. Our talks are best suited to primary schools and go hand in hand with animal modules in their curriculum.
We often have beavers/brownies etc. come out to the centre for a tour which can count towards badges and acheivements. The children love the talks/tours and often give back to the centre by donating food and toys for the cats.
