Become an RSPCA Junior Rescue Officer

Young animal lovers now have the chance to make a real difference to the lives of animals in need by becoming an RSPCA WA Junior Rescue Officer!

The program aims to encourage and engage young children in animal welfare. Junior Rescue Officers will learn how best to care for their own animals as well as practical ways to support RSPCA WA’s team of Inspectors and Carers.

It's never too early to start teaching children how to look after animals, and respect them as living creatures. Being a Junior Rescue Officer reinforces good welfare messages through fun, practical activities that children can do to help animals in their homes, in their neighbourhoods, or animals currently in shelter environments waiting for their new families.

Sign up to become an RSPCA Junior Rescue Officer for $35 (including postage) and you you will receive:

  • An Official Junior Rescue Officer ID card
  • A Paw Points handbook to complete activities throughout the year
  • Certificate upon completion of activites
  • An RSPCA Animania magazine
  • A Junior Rescue Officer bear
  • Three communications with our RSPCA Inspectors a year
  • A birthday card
