Last Tuesday the GSPCA took a stall to the Careers Show 2016 for the fourth time and were overwhelmed by inquiries.

Although the Shelter rarely has vacancies the GSPCA are always looking for volunteers to help in a variety of areas and this was of a huge interest to many of the visitors at the Careers Show.

For many of the Year 9 students it is the first time they are able to help at the Shelter, as to become a volunteer with animals at the Shelter the minimum age is 14 years.

This meant that hoards of Year 9's swamped the GSPCA stand to find out how they could help.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager, Sarah Creasey GSPCA Welfare and Education Officer and Suzy Rose one of the Shelter volunteers talked to hundreds of visitors young and old about careers and volunteering in animal welfare and care.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "What a lovely day we had talking to hundreds of interested visitors about the work of the Shelter and both how they could help and how by helping it can benefit them."

"Much of the focus was placed on how volunteering can increase skills, knowledge and improve a CV."

"When volunteering at the GSPCA we ask those interested to come along to a comprehensive induction and complete an induction booklet which for many of the younger volunteers is the first time helping in a professional work place."

"We have plenty of information on volunteering at the Shelter on our website and when we do have vacancies they are also advertised online."

We held an induction a few days after the event last week and had a full house many from the careers show."

"Thank you to Suzy for volunteering, Sarah for helping out, to all those who visited our stand and also to the Careers Show team for a wonderful event."
