RSPCA Wagga Wagga Volunteer Branch in search of new volunteers
The Wagga Wagga Volunteer Branch of RSPCA NSW is calling on local residents to bolster numbers so that it can continue to provide much needed animal welfare services to the local community.
The Volunteer Branch, which reformed in Wagga Wagga in 2008 following a 25 year hiatus, is encouraging a new generation of volunteers with an interest in animal welfare and protection to join an information session to be held at 5.30pm on Monday 12 August, 2013 at ARCC Building, Tarcatta Street, Wagga Wagga.
Since its reformation in December 2008, the Volunteer Branch has provided services to the local community including fundraising, education and desexing programs. During the most recent assisted desexing scheme, 93 desexing vouchers were distributed to members of the local community with all vouchers being used. Seven veterinary practices within the Riverina provided these services in Wagga Wagga, Leeton, Gundagai, Narrandera and surrounding areas.
“Local Volunteer Branches are an integral part of our presence in many local communities where we don’t have a physical Shelter presence,” said Malcolm Wilbow, RSPCA NSW Manager of Branches – Southern Region.
“Our Wagga Wagga Volunteer Branch has achieved much success in the region and by encouraging new members to join we can continue to support and provide services to the animals and people of the area,” Mr Wilbow added.
