In order to ensure the safety of our volunteers and to maintain consistency in how our animals are socialised, we are only able to recruit a very limited number of volunteers. For this reason, the recruitment process is quite competitive. Please think carefully about being able to commit your time before applying.
Unfortunately due to the high number of applications we receive, we are unable to respond to everyone. If you do not receive a response, you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
Please be aware that for insurance reasons, we are unable to accept volunteers under 18 years of age.
Dog Walkers and Cat Cuddlers are required to attend on the same day each week during opening hours. Successful applicants will be assigned a day subject to availability.
Events volunteers attend various events both at our shelters and at venues across the region throughout the year.
