Last night we held our sixth Volunteer Evening and 8th group Induction at the GSPCA of 2014.
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager was on hand to greet and talk to the 10 new volunteers about the work of the Shelter and induct the keen new volunteers about the procedures and protocols at the Animal Shelter.
Some were interested in helping fund raise, others clean kennels, walk dogs, socialise cats and one doing his Duke of Edinburgh.
4 of the new volunteers have started this morning and the others over the next two weeks.
Many of the new volunteers will be helping at the GSPCA Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday which is on the 14th September.
Our next volunteer induction evening is on Wednesday 22nd October but if you would like to help with fund raising or our Seafront Sunday then please call 257261 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We had a lovely evening last night talking to the new volunteers all of which said they had a nice evening and are very keen to help and get involved.”
“The next Volunteer Induction Evening is on the 22nd October, but if anyone wants to help with any of our fund raising events especially our Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday on the 14th September they can drop me an email or call us for a chat on 01481 257261.”
“We now have well over 350 volunteers that help us at the GSPCA through the year, some giving up half hour on our flag day to those that help every week care for the animals at the Shelter and we appreciate every minute as it all helps us ensure we can do so much to help animals in Guernsey.”
Last night Skye Mollet, Billie Le Poidevin, Jonathan Allaway, Tom Slack, Klara Lee, Joshua Harvey, Danielle Nevielle and Tryane Mollet attended the induction and today Joshua and Skye helped with the dogs at the Shelter, Billie helped with the cats and Tom has been helping with the small animals, wildlife and birds.
