VETERINARY charity PDSA is appealing for animal lovers to lend a paw.
It needs volunteers at its Peterlee store to help raise vital funds for sick and injured pets.
Store manager Susan Curry said: “We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are passionate about pets and who can lend a hand.
“Volunteering for PDSA is fun and the skills you learn look great on any CV, plus you get to meet new people and make some friends along the way.
“No previous retail experience is needed, as full training is provided for all new volunteers.
“So if you would like to help sick and injured pets, why not join our friendly volunteer team here at Peterlee PDSA store?
“We are in need of staff to help both prepare stock for sales, and shop floor staff who are looking for customer service experience and enjoy interacting with people.”
