What could I do?
- For further ideas on how young people can have a positive effect on animal welfare, please see the Reparation section.
- Currently the RSPCA does not allow young offenders to work in its animal centres as a reparation activity. But you may still find a number of ways they could help animals, if you contact your local RSPCA branch. You can only volunteer to work in an RSPCA animal centre if you are over 16.
- We have also developed three interactive activities - Was it cruel?, Consequences and Triggers - that help young people think through what happens when people are cruel to animals (see right). However, before you attempt to use these, we suggest that you explore some of the activities in the other sections - What is animal cruelty?, What triggers animals cruelty and how it can be avoided, Consequences of cruelty to animals and The incident.
