At the GSPCA we feel education has a huge part to play in the world we live and knowing what to do whether helping at the GSPCA, at home or in your work place is extremely important.

This Wednesday we have a Volunteer Induction Evening. If you are interested in helping the GSPCA then we ask for you to pop along at 6.30pm to find out about the GSPCA and a short safety induction.  The evening takes around 90 minutes and is at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.
