Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We are so blessed at the GSPCA with such an amazing team of staff, volunteers and supporters.”

“The nominations for our quarterly commendations come from supporters, the public and the team, but we must thank each and every person involved and that supports the Animal Shelter and the 24 hour 7 day a week work that we carry out.”

“The next volunteer induction is on the 22nd October but with World Animal Day on Saturday we have lots going on this week and to get involved please do get in touch.”

“If you would like to nominate someone for the next round of awards please email me on [email protected], leave the information at the reception desk or by post to the Shelter.
