This Monday at 630pm we have our 11th  volunteer induction and invite all to come and join us to find out more about helping at the GSPCA.

This year alone we have inducted 132 new volunteers, placements and work through these inductions and are graced with an average 120 volunteers each week but with over 500 animals in our care there is always plenty to do.

All are welcome, although for those wanting to help onsite at the Shelter the minimum age is 13.

For volunteers under 13 we have a huge amount of events taking place which they can help at with a parent or guardian.

In fact this Saturday we have a Flag Day at Alliance and we are at Fairfields for the Paws for Support event and looking for volunteers to help and this Sunday our Peter Rabbit Beau Cinema event which we will set up from 12pm for both, please just come along.

The induction starts at 630pm and takes around 90 minutes and after a talk you get the chance to chat to a member of the team and set a date to start volunteering.
