The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is looking for people who can spare a couple of hours a week to walk dogs and take care of cats.

Volunteer co-ordinator Gill Hallard said she is putting together a new rota for helpers and has a number of spaces in the week-day diary.

She said the volunteers’ main tasks will be walking the dogs and spending time with the animals.

“What we are really asking for is responsible adults who can invest as little as two hours a week in the SPCA,” said Ms Hallard.

“All we are looking for is people who can spare the same two hours a week, so we can get them on the rota and rely on them to come at the same time each week.

“It won’t necessarily mean a lot to the people who volunteer, but it will mean an awful lot to the SPCA and to the animals.

“At the moment, the dogs can only be walked when we have enough volunteers.

With more volunteers it would mean that the dogs would be walked every day.” Volunteers are needed between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m..

Anyone able to help should call Ms Hallard on 236-2136, or e-mail her at ghallard

RESULTS DELAYED SUR CLB Results delayed Details of a recent survey on father/child rights and domestic family condition will not be released before the New Year as previously planned.

Child Watch, a father/child rights advocacy group, launched the survey in October hoping to gather domestic family information from the public.

The group planned to study the demographics and rank the information for follow-up tasks.

Unexpectedly, public support flooded the charities meagre resources — overwhelming the survey review team and boosting membership from five to 34.

Some sheets were collected with more than ten times the expected information.

Organisation chairman Eddie Fisher said: “We don’t want to rush this and get it wrong.” The organisation will be holding a public meeting for further input tomorrow, December 6, at 5.30 p.m. in the Community Affairs, Youth and Sports centre on Court Street.

The results from the survey are now expected to be released in January.
