Purrfect for pets in need

Corporate volunteer painting for Blue Cross

At Blue Cross, pets are at the heart of everything we do. Every year, thousands of dogs, cats, horses and small pets come to our hospitals and clinics for treatment and care. The valuable work that corporate teams do at our rehoming centres and hospitals helps us provide an even better environment for pets in need.

What will your team get stuck into?

There are lots of activities on offer on your volunteer day. You’re sure to be dog-tired by the end of it, but it will be lots of fun! Typical activities include….

  • Building rabbit hutches – taking pre-cut kits and assembling sturdy homes for the rabbits in our care
  • Painting and decorating – applying your skills to make our space a more beautiful place for both pets and people
  • Creating a vegetable garden – designing and planting a garden to grow nutritious veg for our hungry rabbits
  • Caring for our grounds – using your green fingers to help maintain the natural spaces where we care for animals
  • Making pet toys – assembling cat enrichment toys such as scratching posts to keep our many moggies happy
  • Preparing fundraising events – putting up marquees, sorting raffle prizes . . . you name it, it needs doing!

You’ll meet lots of animals, too!

Whatever activities you do, we’ll introduce you to lots of gorgeous pets in our care. *We’ll even give your team a demonstration of our amazing dog training techniques. Of course, the number and types of animals in our care varies at any given time, but we’ll do our best to bring you as close to as many as possible.

We’ll take good care of you

We’ll make sure to keep your energy levels up with plenty of refreshments and biscuits. All volunteers will need to bring a packed lunch. Your experience includes an in-depth tour of our rehoming centre or animal hospital. Plus we’ll give you some Blue Cross goodies to take away and a certificate. And don’t worry, we’ll take care of insurance, risk assessment and provide the whole team with a safety briefing.

All activities are subject to availability and weather conditions. Not all activities are available at all locations and some locations are unable to accommodate larger groups.


Your day at one of our animal rehoming centres or hospitals will run from 10.00am til 4.00pm. The size of your group can vary from a minimum of four to a maximum of eight people. We ask for a minimum donation of £50 per head to cover our costs of organising and supervising the day.
