Last night the GSPCA welcomed 15 new faces and 11 new volunteers within the group.

For a number of years we have been running volunteer induction evenings and sessions.  In 2014 over 200 volunteers were inducted and welcomed to the team, not including the many volunteers that helped through the year, at events, through Corporate Social Responsibility Days and Voluntourists.  This year a further 200+ joined us at the GSPCA with a further 200+  that spent a day or more through a corporate day and 25 Voluntourists from the cruise liners.

Last night Jessica, Joshua, Lesley, Jackie, Reuben, Alison, Emanuelle, Janis, Evita, Cole and Lisa had an induction and are all set to start in the coming weeks with Jessica having started this morning.

The induction included a welcome by GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne, a talk about our work, how the volunteers could help, health & safety, upcoming fund raisers, a presentation of a certificate for attending and each new volunteer finished with a short chat with the Manager to set a date to start.

Volunteers will be helping in areas from reception to guided tours, the late night shopping stall to admin, animal care to dog walking and much more.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "A huge thank you to all the new volunteers that came along last night and we are looking forward to each of them helping and starting in the coming weeks."

"Two of the lads are starting their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award placement whilst most are keen to help in any way they can."

"Year on year our volunteer team and network grows and it is amazing that we have over 600 active volunteers helping us every year from those that give a few hours once a year to those that give regular days or nights every week."

"If anyone is keen in getting involved please do get in touch or check out our pages on our website which are packed with ways individuals or groups can help."

"Quite often we see over 90 volunteers and placements each week helping us care for the 300 animals at the Shelter, provide 24/7 cover and help raise the £2000 a day we need to run the Shelter here in St Andrews and rescue the 3000 animals each year."

"A massive thank you to everyone that has helped in 2015 and a thank you in advance for all of your support in 2016 with each of our animal hero's we couldn't achieve so much."
