Just a couple of posts ago, when talking about how we can give to pet charities this upcoming holiday season, I mentioned the RSPCA, The Royal Society For the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals .
The UK charity has been working tirelessly and passionately to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to animals since 1824. It was the first society for the protection of animals in the world, spearheaded by MP Richard Martin, known as “Humanity Dick”. By 1840, the society’s work was held in such high regard that Queen Victoria gave permission to use the word “Royal” to its title.
Well, the RSPCA is now looking for volunteers who will be filling three key roles in the organization. The jobs will be for the Peterborough and District Branch.
The first position involves someone who will help with welfare assistance three times a week every afternoon. The role involves talking to the public, liaising with vets and doing basic administration work.
The second vacancy is for a rehoming co-ordinator for someone with 15 to 20 hours to spare each week.
The branch is also looking for someone to oversee the collection box operation.
Branch manager Diana Robinson said:
�Volunteers are vital to our success. However, we need to fill these positions as soon as possible.�
If you can help, call 01733 248116, or e-mail rspca. [email protected]
