Animal Education


At PACT we work with many local schools. We regularly partake in school assemblies and talks. We have found that this is an effective way of educating young people about kindness towards animals and importance of good animal welfare. These talks include information on pet care, wildlife information and awareness. We also have school guided visits at PACT where we take small of groups of children and teachers around the sanctuary and educate them on the different animals and their needs. This has proven extremely popular and we are hoping to get more local schools involved in PACT and work together to promote animal welfare.  If you are a teacher in Norfolk or Suffolk, would like to find out more, please contact us on 01362 820775.

PACT also provides onsite learning-based opportunities. We have over 100 students that come through our gates every year. Some are only for a few days and some come for up to two years for college/university-based placements. PACT is the largest all animal rescue centre in East Anglia, providing an amazing environment for students to work with a large variety of breeds and wildlife species, giving them the opportunity to gain invaluable experience. We also work with the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Where we able to offer up to 8 placements a week for students completing this award including Bronze, Silver and Gold. Working at PACT helps the students develop essential skills for life and work. Duke of Edinburgh is a recognised mark of achievement which is recognised by employers.
