Every day the GSPCA rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals and the summer months are certainly the busiest time of year.

This year we have extra help thanks to Situation Recruitment.  Once a month a member of their staff spends a day at the Shelter.  Whilst at the GSPCA they are helping care for the hundreds of animals and birds at the Shelter.

Andrew Partlow popped along for his first day last Friday and within minutes of arriving found himself scrubbing the many bowls down on the hedgehog unit.

Andrew spent the day helping in many of the departments cleaning out, exercising animals and generally assisting the team with a variety of their duties.

Andrew said ‘What a fantastic day.  I really enjoyed myself and I got to help care for many of the animals at the Shelter.’

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said ‘We are so grateful to Situations Recruitment as not only does a member of their staff help at the Shelter each month, but they support the GSPCA by sharing our appeals and stories online.’  ‘Andrew got stuck in and wasn’t fazed by all the animal excrement he had to pick up and he was a great help.’
