Des­per­ate for new vol­un­teers

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE RSPCA helps an­i­mals who are most in need. It’s a tough job, of­ten deal­ing with dif­fi­cult peo­ple and see­ing an­i­mals who have ex­pe­ri­enced suf­fer­ing and ne­glect can be very dis­tress­ing.

But by volunteering with us as an ad­min or of­fice sup­port vol­un­teer you could be part of giv­ing these an­i­mals a sec­ond chance.

Can you help to an­swer calls, di­rect our An­i­mal Wel­fare Of­fi­cers in the field, as­sist with pro­cess­ing adop­tion ap­pli­ca­tions, and help with some es­sen­tial ad­min­is­tra­tion work?

“With the in­crease in calls from mem­bers of the public, and the num­ber of an­i­mals res­cued, we are strug­gling. That’s why we are des­per­ate for vol­un­teers who can help fill some of our gaps” says Ch­eryl O’Keeffe, An­i­mal Wel­fare Team.

The help of vol­un­teers means we can be there when an an­i­mal needs us most, and you will as­sist with the run­ning of the branch’s re­hom­ing and wel­fare pro­grammes.

Your ad­min­is­tra­tion skills, pas­sion and can do at­ti­tude will en­able us to help an­i­mals in need, it’s also a great op­por­tu­nity to learn new skills and meet like-minded peo­ple.

We’re look­ing for peo­ple who are pro­fi­cient in Mi­crosoft Of­fice in­clud­ing Word, Ex­cel and Out­look, con­fi­dent, ef­fi­cient and friendly, with of­fice ex­pe­ri­ence and a quick learner who can fol­low in­struc­tion ac­cu­rately. If you think you fit the bill and can com­mit to as­sist­ing in the of­fice 9.30am to 5pm on a Fri­day plus a morn­ing or af­ter­noon slot on Mon­days we would love to hear from you.

Even though it is an of­fice based po­si­tion you will get to meet all sorts of an­i­mals as they come and go, from tiny kit­tens to ger­bils.

Hav­ing a grate­ful cat purring in the back­ground is won­der­ful re­minder of why we are here, but also why we re­ally need you to join us. If you would like to join us, please con­tact Ch­eryl to­day on ch­eryl@ rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk for an ap­pli­ca­tion form.

Snow and Ham have just ar­rived and need a new home.

These very cute lit­tle guys (both male ger­bils) are about a year old and came into our care as the chil­dren who had them be­came bored with them, a tale we hear all too of­ten.

If you would like to adopt the in­quis­i­tive lit­tle char­ac­ters then please call us on (020) 8966 9688 or email us at: info@ rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk To see all the an­i­mals we have in our care des­per­ately look­ing for a new home for life visit our web­site at www.rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk.
