On Wednesday we held another volunteer induction afternoon and were pleased to welcome a further 8 volunteers to the GSPCA team.

James, Liz, Martin, Jo, Abbie, Zara, Kira and Sarah spent the afternoon finding out about the work of the GSPCA, how to work safely at the GSPCA, all about the fund raising events and other opportunities at the Animal Shelter.

Each of those attending had an area they would like to focus such as ferrets to cats, fund raising to dogs and we would like to thank them for attending and getting involved.

Around the clock volunteers in Guernsey are helping animals whether at the GSPCA or other animal charities.

Every single night of the year a volunteer helps ensure that at the GSPCA we can provide around the clock emergency cover.

The volunteers that make up this fantastic group come from all walks of the community and help ensure every night between 6pm until 8am the next someone can go out to rescue an animal in need.

Matt Hill-Smith and Jen Bradshaw are two of our volunteer wardens and help cover on average two nights a week.
