Volunteering

We rely on volunteers to help us do the work we do and continue to help as many dogs as we can!

We have a number of volunteer positions available at present. Part of being a volunteer with us means you need to be reliable as we need people to turn up for their volunteer shift so we can adequately care for the dogs and get other tasks done. We are open 365 days of the year therefore if there is ever a time you are not able to come in for your shift you must give us as much notice as possible, and no less than 48 hours notice so we can arrange cover.

You must be 18 years old and have some form of photo ID and proof of address to volunteer with us.

If you would like to get involved in helping the Rescue, please complete and send the form below. Once the form has been received, it will be reviewed and you will be contacted by the volunteer co-ordinator.

Kennel Volunteers

You must be over 18 to work in the the kennels, and be fairly confident in handling all different types of dogs. The duties include cleaning kennels, feeding, walking, playing with the dogs, general housekeeping duties including washing pots, folding washing, sweeping and mopping floors etc. Helping the staff with donations, training, and socialising the dogs.

If you are interested in doing some kennel shifts you must be willing to COMMIT TO A REGULAR WEEKLY SHIFT. We get let down a lot by people who turn up once and then never come again so we really need people who will be dedicated to coming on a regular basis.

Shifts are:

Monday: 8am-12pm or 5pm-9pm

Tuesday: 8am-12pm or 5pm-9pm

Wednesday: 8am-12pm or 5pm-9pm

Thursday: 8am-12pm or 5pm-9pm

Friday: 8am-12pm or 5pm-9pm

Saturday & Sunday: 8am-12pm or 5pm-9pm

You must be reliable and committed, confident and able to follow instructions, have the ability to work on your own intiative and have a love of dogs. A keeness to get dirty and wet as that is how you will spend most shifts and a commitment to come every week regardless of the weather.

Please note, although we try and communicate with people straight away, due to the nature of the charity and limited funding our response may not be immediate. You will receive a welcome e-mail from our volunteer co-ordinator you should look out for this e-mail. Thank you.
