Last night over 20 new faces came along to the first Volunteer Induction of the new decade.

The volunteers of all ages arrived just before 630am where GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne greeted them and gave the induction where they learned all about our work, how they can help, procedures, health, safety and much more.

At the end of the induction each received an induction booklet, certificate, pen and got the chance to speak to Steve about how they would like to help.

Steve Byrne GSPCA manager said “What a wonderful way to kick off our first volunteer induction of 2020 at the GSPCA with 20 new volunteers.”

“17 have already set dates to start helping us at the GSPCA with 12 of those joining us as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award.”

“It was a lovely evening and we are so grateful to all that came along and we are looking forward getting everyone involved from helping with the ambulance to admin, fund raising to helping with the animals.”

“Our next Volunteer Induction is next month during #GSPCAPurpleWeek and we already have keen new helpers that couldn’t make last night.”

“To see all the upcoming dates and more about volunteering please do check out our webpage .”

“We couldn’t achieve so much with out our amazing volunteers and with over 100 helping every week and over 800 every year it is incredible what we are able to achieve at the GSPCA helping animals and the community in so many ways.”

“Thanks again to all that attended and we look forward seeing the first of the new volunteers start tomorrow.”
