Spring is always a busy time at the GSPCA with many baby birds, hedgehogs waking, young animals being born and many animals coming through the doors.

On Friday last week the GSPCA were pleased to welcome 11 staff from Northern Trust who gave their day to help the team at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

With over 200 animals in the care of the GSPCA at any time and Spring being one of the busiest times the staff from Northern Trust arrived at 9am and quickly found themselves helping in all areas of the Shelter.

From cleaning out the seal room to washing out the cats, walking the dogs to cleaning the kennels, scrubbing aviaries to helping with the rabbits, scrubbing the hedgehog pens to assisting baby bird feeds the 11 staff were kept very busy and were a great help.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'The team of 11 staff from Northern Trust were a huge help on Friday as we have so many animals and there is a lot going on at the Shelter with the Redevelopment Launch and the many other activities happening on at the GSPCA.' 

'The GSPCA team really enjoyed the Northern Trust staff helping out and they really enjoyed their day too.'

'This is the first of three days staff from Northern Trust are coming along to help at the GSPCA and we have heard that those coming on the next visits are already looking forward to their time at the Shelter.'

'We must thank all 11 staff from Northern Trust for all their help and we look forward to meeting the next two groups in the Summer.'
