Can you donate time to Dogs?
Dogs Trust Evesham sniffing out new volunteers
Currently here at Dogs Trust Evesham we have around 90 dogs in our care, and have found over 630 dogs loving homes this year. It's fairly safe to say no 2 days are the same
Thoughts of donations can tend to turn to treats, or raffle prizes... But remember you can also donate your time to helping the dogs in our care. We are currently searching for volunteers to help us in different areas of the centre. So if you have a passion for dogs and a few hours a week to spare, why not consider volunteering?
Our volunteers are incredible people, from all different backgrounds each with a wonderful 'tail' about how they came about volunteering. A rewarding venture, not just for yourself but to see a happy doggy get excited to see you or a shy pooch find their character is certainly a good feeling.
So if you fancy finding out a bit more info, or are interested in one of the roles currently available (see below) email [email protected] or pop into the centre for an application form!
