Last night the GSPCA held the last volunteer induction of 2016 and for the first time welcomed volunteers at the age of 13 who can now help with animal care on site.

After a review of risk assessments, forms and our insurance we are proud to announce that volunteers from the age of 13 can now help on site at the GSPCA after completing a volunteer induction and forms.

With over 200 new volunteers inducted during 2016 we have had a huge array of helpers assisting us from those that have helped with one off events to those that help several days a week.

For many years volunteering to help at the GSPCA with the animals has been a minimum of 14 years of age.

This has meant volunteers like Molly pictured above as she is below 14 has only been able to help with the many events and fund raisers we hold.

After discussions with our insurance company, a review of our risk assessments and procedures we are pleased to announce that volunteers of 13 years can now help.
