Volunteer at one of our charity shops

Helping out in our shops makes a real difference to pets in need. One hour spent volunteering in a Blue Cross shop can raise the funds needed to give lifesaving vaccinations to a litter of eight abandoned puppies.

Volunteering in our expanding network of charity shops is a great way to start a career in retail, or practice and develop your retail and customer experience skills.  You’ll make new friends and help us to raise money to help more needy pets at the same time! 

Training will be provided, and you’ll get lots of opportunities to share your skills and take on more responsibility.
