The GSPCA have run a Volunteer out of hours warden service for over 40 years and we are very proud of our amazing team that do so much to help 1000's of animals in Guernsey every year.

This role entails driving the GSPCA Ambulance and answering the emergency phone out of hours or on the weekend to respond to the varied calls that come in all times of the day and night.

From helping reunite stray dogs to catching baby birds, containing cows in the road to checking reports of injured seals you never know what a call may entail.

We are currently looking to recruit additional volunteers to help with this essential service on the weekends and occasionally help in the week.

We are looking for volunteers that can drive with a passion for helping animals in Guernsey.

The times we are looking for volunteers to help rescue animals are between 8am and 6pm on a Saturday, 6pm Saturday until 8am Sunday morning and 8am to 6pm on a Sunday.

To start we ask you to attend a volunteer induction and the next is on Thursday 4th August at 6.30pm please just come along and from there additional training is given to be able to carry out this very rewarding and often challenging role.

For example last night Volunteer Warden Dave Brook helped a young sparrow at the Bowl, 2 ducklings, a young pigeon, a stray dog and checked out a goose at L'Eree, although there are evenings with no calls at all.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We have an amazing team of volunteer emergency wardens who are up for the Pride of Guernsey Emergency Hero Awards."

"Being a warden for the GSPCA is extremely rewarding and often challenging and they all help us make a real difference helping animal welfare in Guernsey."

"We have an induction tomorrow night but if you can't make it please drop me an email or a call on 257261 as we really need to recruit additional wardens for the weekends."

"If you are interested in becoming a warden and would like to chat to one about the role then they too would love to speak to you about all that they do."
