Volunteer with us
Giving your time is a wonderful gift to us. Volunteers have an indispensable role both at the Home assisting staff and representing us in our community.
Each role - from getting stuck into our laundry to being in charge of a collection at an event - is an important part of the charity's work as a whole.
Together with you we can do the best for our animals and the charity.
We strive to recognise the hard work our volunteers do, and ensure that they are valued as part of our team. We have an annual get together plus quarterly email newsletter to keep in touch. As a small thank you, we have arranged for volunteers to have free entry to The American Museum and a 5% discount at our PawStore pet shop and charity shops at Moorland Road and Frome.
Please note that all volunteer roles are for ages 18+ only.
Our younger supporters can help our animals by being a Pounds for Paws fundraiser. » Click here to find out more.
