Volunteering for us is one enjoyable way of helping animal welfare and can be very rewarding.


Do you have skills you could use to help a good cause? Are you passionate about animal welfare? We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable people to actively volunteer.  

This is how you can help

We can’t do it without you

Our volunteers make a huge contribution to the work we do to prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate the suffering of animals.

What will I gain?

Volunteering with us is a great way to meet like minded people who share the same enthusiasm for animal welfare. There are lots of other benefits too, such as:

  • gaining new skills or developing existing ones

  • the chance to try out something new

  • doing something useful and rewarding

  • gaining a sense of achievement

  • putting something back into the community

  • developing your personal skills and confidence

As a volunteer, you can gain important transferable skills in fundraising, campaigning, finance, team building, management, computers, administration – the list is endless.

Who can volunteer?

Anyone can volunteer. We value diversity and encourage volunteers from all sections of the community.

Unfortunately, though there are limited opportunities for anyone who is under 16 years of age and some restrictions apply in relation to opportunities for those under 18’s. If you can’t find a volunteering opportunity why not consider organising your own fundraising activity.

How do I volunteer?

If you’d like to find out more please contact our Branch and complete a short form; why not take a look at our events section to see if they are something you would like to get involved in; alternatively contact our Branch fundraising administrator for a chat or further details.
Before you join us as a volunteer, you will be asked to complete a volunteer application form and provide referees for us to contact (depending on the role you are applying for). When you start as a volunteer you will be provided with an induction programme and any training you may need to carry out the role.

How much time will I have to give?

There are many ways you can help us make a difference, no matter how much time you have available or the level of commitment you can afford to give.   

Branch Trustee Role

Do you have professional expertise you could use to help a good cause? Are you passionate about animal welfare? We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable people to actively volunteer for the Branch as trustees, ensuring that the Branch is governed and managed effectively, whilst continually having animal welfare at the forefront of their minds.

Trustees serve on the governing body of the charity and have the responsibility of running the Branch. As a trustee of a Branch, you will have the chance to influence how we care for and prevent cruelty to animals. More about this role
