On Wednesday another 13 new volunteers joined the GSPCA team.
Every 8 weeks or so the GSPCA hold Volunteer Induction evenings and this week we welcomed the newest group to the team.
With well over 340 volunteers helping the Animal Shelter every year and over 60 new helpers since the beginning of the year we are very grateful to all the help and support we receive.
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said ‘The volunteer support we receive is just fantastic and means we can do so much.’
‘With 2-300 animals in our care at any time, helping over 2000 a year and operating 24 7 it does mean we need help all around the clock from with the animals to reception, fund raising to gardening.’
‘Some of the new volunteers are on placements like Duke of Edinburgh, others looking to fill spare time and also a few wanting to get experience to pop on their CV.’
‘We would like to thank and welcome all of our new volunteers to the team, and of course a continued thanks to all that already help.’
We are always looking for volunteers to help at the Shelter in a variety of roles. Volunteers helping raise funds for the GSPCA Animal Shelter Guernsey
You need to be at least 14 years old to help at the Shelter. If you are younger then you could still help. If you talk to your parents or guardians they may help you with fund raising for the Animal Shelter.
To get started in Volunteering at the GSPCA we hold Induction Evenings and no matter your age their is always a way you can help.
The Volunteer Induction Evenings for 2014 will take place on the following Wednesdays at 6.30pm in the Event and Training Room at the GSPCA.
