Last night we held our 14th volunteer induction at the GSPCA and met 26 new helpers keen to learn how they can get involved with us here at the Animal Shelter adding to the 143 inducted this year taking this years inducted volunteers to a total of 169 not including others that have helped from businesses, groups and other organisations.

The penultimate induction of 2017 took place with GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne who showed a video about who we are, what we do, the ways volunteers can help and an induction of how to help safely to all the new volunteers who were aged from 13 years upwards.  

Although volunteering at the Animal Shelter starts at 13 for those under 13 they are always welcome to attend and get involved with events and fund raising and we have a number helping this weekend for our Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday.

At the end of the induction each spoke to Steve to set dates and times to start and all were given a certificate of attendance and a pack of information including a hand book as well as a few group pictures.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Last night we had an overflowing room on new volunteers keen to help us at the GSPCA."

“We had 20 new Duke of Edinburgh placements attend 19 of which start this weekend and 6 volunteers interested in helping with reception, general animal care, dog walking, cat socialising and admin work."

"This was our penultimate induction evening of 2017 with the last taking place at 6.30pm on Monday 11th December and then we have just set the dates for 2018 today."

"For anyone interested in volunteering or helping please visit http://gspca.org.gg/about/volunteers or call 257261 for more information."

"Every week we see over 120 volunteers and they help us cover the 24/7 work we carry out 365 days a year, but with over 550 animals in our care there is plenty to do and we are always keen to get those interested involved with the work we do helping thousands of animals every year in Guernsey."

"We regularly see in excess of 50 Duke of Edinburgh placements each week as well as many on back to work schemes, students and other placements from a variety of organisations and we are always happy to help where we can and really appreciate the support for the work we carry out 24/7."
