Volunteer with our Pet Bereavement Support Service

Become a PBSS volunteer

Our Pet Bereavement Support Service (PBSS) provides emotional support and practical information to help pet owners with feelings of grief and loss.

Grieving for the loss of a pet, whether through death, parting, enforced separation, or any form of loss of a pet, can be a sad and difficult experience. We have supported pet owners for over twenty years and also provide training to employees at veterinary practices and Guide Dog centres.

Volunteers provide emotional support and practical information by telephone or email to help pet owners (and others in contact with pet owners) to overcome feelings of grief and loss.

This is a very emotional role as our service receives some very distressing calls and messages, so it’s not for everyone. But if you have the right skills to show genuine empathy and warmth in conversations and emails, you could provide valuable and unforgettable support to our clients.

These roles come with a 8-week distance learning training course and all volunteers will need access to a computer and landline at home.
