RSPCA South East Somerset Trustee
Would you like to help animals whilst improving your CV and further developing your business skills? We are a local independent charity currently looking to broaden the skills base of our trustee board and are looking for people with any of the following skills and obviously an interest in animal welfare. Fundraising, retail, legal relating to contracts, Charity and trading regulations, marketing and social media We currently have a small board of 9 people but are always on the lookout for new skills to broaden our range of expertise. Your commitment would be evening meetings once a month. There are opportunities to undertake a wider role.
This independent branch was started in 1974. It covers an area encompassing Henstridge, Yeovil, Crewkerne, Langport, Somerton, Street, Glastonbury, Shepton Mallet and Wincanton including Castle Cary and other towns and villages within that perimeter.
We do not have an animal centre but use fosterers and our own small cattery for a small number of animals before getting them ready, neutering and vaccinating and re-homing through a private boarding establishment
We run occasional drop in days for the travelling and Gypsy communities. We even do doorstep care for the more house bound or other animals in need. We give financial support to animals identified by the Inspectorate and our volunteers.
We undertake contributions toward veterinary care for animals in need and ensure animals brought to our attention do not suffer but are offered the best possible chance for the future.
We undertake trapping, health checks and neutering for feral colonies of cats whenever we have trained volunteers for this.
We support our main Society by helping to promote the aims through education, campaigning and all other positive animal welfare.
We have shops at Glastonbury, Somerton, Crewkerne and Street.
