Volunteering with animals
There are lots of ways you can volunteer to help us care for animals at our adoption and horse centres.
- Walking dogs
- Socialising cats and kittens
- Socialising small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs
- Helping out with cleaning, bathing, grooming
- Grooming and feeding horses and ponies and mucking out their stables
- Taking photos of the animals ready for rehoming for our website
- Driving animals to the vet, or between our centres and hospitals
- Fostering animals for a short while in your own home while they recover from illness, or until they are old enough to be re-homed
Rehoming - pet fostering volunteers
We are gradually building a network of volunteers throughout the UK to help us rehome more needy pets. There are two volunteer roles to choose from.
- Foster Carers look after pets in their own homes
- Foster Coordinators provide administrative support to carers in their area, helping them to place their animals in new homes
Not all opportunities are available everywhere, and age restrictions vary depending on local health and safety concerns. To find out fostering opportunities are available near you, please see our current volunteering opportunities.
Fostering animals isn’t for everyone. If you’d prefer to adopt one of our animals, have a look at the pets currently waiting for new homes.
