At the GSPCA we hold Volunteer Induction Evenings every 6 to 8 weeks but with the Summer upon us and many willing volunteers over 14 wanting to help at the Shelter and those under 14 able to help at the many fund raisers we are at we held an afternoon induction session yesterday where we greeted 11 new volunteers to the team.

We really couldn't achieve all of the fantastic work we carry out at the GSPCA without the wonderful volunteer team we have at the GSPCA and we really do appreciate each and every one.

This morning Bethany, Jack, Val and Katie spent their first day with the team helping in the many areas of the Shelter from cleaning to socialising and walking the animals on site.

Over the next few days Kirsten, Katelin, Jodie, Ellie, Wiktoria, Glenda and Ben will join the team and we look forward getting them involved.

Due to the success and the interest in those looking to help at the Shelter we are planning the next induction session on Wednesday 20th July at 2pm at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews and if you are interested in getting involved please come along.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "The volunteer inductions we hold are an hour talk about what we do and how to work safely for the GSPCA."

"After the induction handouts are given and we chat to each person to see where their interest lies before setting a date and time for them to start."

"We have a fantastic team of volunteers at the GSPCA and it is always great to get new members on board to help out with the hundreds of animals in our care and all of the work we carry out around the clock 365 days a year."

"Whether its helping 7 days a week or a couple of hours once a year, every little helps make a real difference and we really do appreciate it and so do the animals in our care."

"We now issue certificates as part of the induction process as a way of a thank you and proof that our volunteers have taken part, and we look forward getting all of the new volunteers involved here at the GSPCA."
