The RSPCA is appealing to animal lovers in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire to play a vital role in its rescue operations.

The charity needs wildife casualty volunteers who can collect and transport sick, injured or orphaned animals in need of care to vets and approved wildlife centres.

RSPCA inspector, Richard Lythgoe, said: “The volunteers play a vital role for the RSPCA and make a real difference in helping wildlife in their local areas.

“What’s also important to us inspectors is that they help to reduce the amount of time we spend on driving to collect birds in boxes and allow us to concentrate on case work, complaints, collections and other rescues.”

Applicants will need to be available for training on May 1 at Blackberry Farm Animal Centre in Aylesbury.

Email volunteersupport@rspca.org.uk for an application form, stating which geographical area you would be interested in covering.
