THE Scottish SPCA is looking for volunteers across the north of Scotland to help the animals in their centres.

The charity is promoting volunteering is a great way to get involved in animal welfare as well as a rewarding way to spend some free time. Not all the roles on offer involve direct contact with the animals but nevertheless contribute massively to what the Scottish SPCA does to improve the quality of life of Scotland’s animals.

A variety of roles are on offer, including fundraising and/or engagement tasks, tailored to suit each individual's personal interests and time, such as attending or promoting fundraising activities or representing the Society in local communities.

Scottish SPCA volunteer Julie Duguid, said: “If you are a lover of animals and care about their welfare, volunteering is a very rewarding and a great experience.

"There is a variety of activities to choose from so if you have some time to spare, even a few hours, it all counts towards keeping the Scottish SPCA running.

“I've been a volunteer for eight years now and I feel proud to be able to contribute to this wonderful cause."
