THE RSPCA'S holiday programs at its Wacol Animal Care Campus give youngsters hands-on experience of caring for animals.

Canine Carers is for kids aged six to 10 years who love dogs.

They'll learn how to meet new dogs safely with the help of an "education dog".

The program will teach what a dog needs to be healthy and happy, and how to create toys at home for a pet to play with.

Participants will finish the afternoon by making a toy to give to a deserving pet.

The cost for this program is $25 and it runs from 1.30-3.30pm at the campus, 139 Wacol Station Rd, Wacol, on January 14 and 22.

Also on offer is a Wild for Wildlife program, or Wildlife Crusaders for children aged 11-15 years, on January 17 and 25. Feline Friends for older kids takes place on January 16 and 24.

Find out what a cat needs to be healthy and happy.
