The role

Home Visitor volunteers assist our Rehoming Team by visiting potential adopters in their homes, to discuss how a rescue animal might fit in with their lifestyle, and how they plan to provide for the future well-being of the animal once in their care.

Full training will be given - for a detailed description of the role please download and read the Home Visitor volunteer role document below.

We are no longer taking applications for home visit volunteers in the Bath area as we are full, but would welcome any volunteers who can cover Bristol or Wiltshire.


About you

Aged 18 or over.

With your own transport, access to email and a smartphone (as we use an app to register visits).

Friendly and courteous, you will be meeting a wide range of people.

Be comfortable asking a variety of questions, with effective communication skills - particularly being a good listener.

Comfortable with all kinds of pets.

Flexible with your time availability - evening and weekend visits are the most popular. 

Able to commit to at least one visit per week - we aim to have home visitors scheduled with 4-8 visits per month.
