Last Friday a team of staff from IQ EQ spent a day volunteering at the GSPCA.

7 IQ EQ staff arrived at 9am to be greeted by Tim Pellett the GSPCA Training and Community Officer.

They started with a lovely picture at the front of the Animal Shelter before they began a day of helping around site and specifically painting many areas including the GSPCA Reception and Hospital Building.

Through the day they learnt about much of our work and met many of the team and finished with a tour of the site to see the many animals and much of our work.

Volunteers Week - GSPCA dog training volunteers are ABSOLUTELY PAWSOME!

Submitted by Steve on 14:04, 3rd Jun, 2021 | 0

As many people know we have been running our amazing dog training classes at the Shelter for over two decades during which time we have been VERY ‘fur’tunate (sorry) to have some wonderful volunteers dedicating their time and expertise to help us promote responsible dog ownership, welfare in dog training and, of course, help owners navigate their way through what can seem a mine field of owning and training a new pooch.
