As part of Volunteers Week and our continued recruitment of volunteers to help animals in Guernsey last night we greeted 7 new faces wanting to help at the GSPCA.

From work experience to Duke of Edinburgh, dog walking to reception, cat pen cleaning to helping with the wildlife, fund raising to volunteering to gain experience for their CV all of the group were looking to help the work of the Animal Shelter and some to help gain life skills.

Getting to the Shelter was a little challenge with the road closure but all arrived around 6.30pm.

At the GSPCA we care for between 200 and 300 animals at any time and work 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Without volunteers we couldn't carry out the vital animal welfare work and on Wednesday we are holding our next volunteer induction evening at 6.30pm.

We are currently looking to find volunteers that can help in all areas and especially help us cover the ambulance work which we have carried out as a 24 hour service for over 40 years.
