The GSPCA has 21 paid staff and a team of over 400 volunteers that help through the year, and without the dedicated team we couldn’t achieve so much.

Although it is rare for paid positions to become available we regularly recruit volunteers and hold induction evenings every 4 to 6 weeks.

To volunteer on site you have to be over 14 years of age, but with a parent or guardian if under 14 you can help at events and fund raisers.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We are extremely lucky and very proud to have such a dedicated team of volunteers and staff at the GSPCA.”

“Every year at the GSPCA we build on the team of established volunteers and also look to provide placements and experiences for a wide range of individuals and groups.”

“Every member of the GSPCA team is an animal hero, but this is a way that we can give the team some recognition from their piers and our supporters who think highly of them.”

“Our next volunteer induction evening is 6.30pm on Wednesday 25th March at the Shelter and all are welcome.”

“It’s not always easy working at the GSPCA as we see very upsetting sights, but it is extremely rewarding knowing that you are part of a team that makes a difference every single day helping animals and the local community.”

“We are currently fund raising to improve the facilities at the GSPCA to replace many of our older buildings and we are appealing for donations and anyone that would like to join our Build Partner programme.”

“The new facilities will help make access easier to certain areas which will open up potential new volunteer opportunities which we are very excited about.”

“A huge thank you to all of the continued hard work that our dedicated GSPCA staff and volunteers carry out 24 hours a day 7 days a week, it is really appreciated.”
