As part of Volunteers Week and our continued recruitment of volunteers to help animals in Guernsey we greeted 12 new faces wanting to help at the GSPCA this evening.

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.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager greeted the group and gave a presentation and talk about the work we carry out 24 hours 7 days a week, the differing volunteer roles and how to work safely at the GSPCA Shelter and our events.

After a 90 minute talk each of the group had a chance to talk to Steve Byrne about what they'd like to do and a date was set for them to come in.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We hold Volunteer Inductions every month at the GSPCA and it is wonderful how we always have such a great attendance."

"This evening we welcomed 12 new volunteers each wanting to help it different ways and the first starts in the morning."

"We have over 100 active volunteers every week and over 600 each year."

"Our next Volunteer Induction Evening is on Thursday 30th June at 6.30pm and we have many more planned through the year."

"We couldn't help the thousands of animals that come through our doors at the GSPCA without our fantastic volunteers and great team."

"We look forward to the the new volunteers starting over the next few weeks and thank them all for wanting to help us make a real difference to animals lives in Guernsey."
