We are always looking for volunteers to help at the Shelter in a variety of roles.
You need to be at least 13 years old to help at the Shelter. If you are younger then you could still help. If you talk to your parents or guardians they may help you with fund raising for the Animal Shelter.
To get started in Volunteering at the GSPCA we hold Induction Evenings and no matter your age there is always a way you can help.
If you are looking to complete your work experience, Duke of Edinburgh or similar placement it is a requirement to attend one of the sessions to arrange a start date and complete the induction.
The Volunteer Induction Evenings planned for 2017 will take place on the following days and times in the Event and Training Room at the GSPCA, but please do call 257261 closer to the date to confirm it is taking place.
When you arrive to attend please follow the paw prints at the front of reception which will take you to the upper floor where the sessions are held.
