Volunteering Frequently Asked Questions:

I am unable to offer a weekly commitment on the same day of the week.

This role of Volunteer Canine Assistant requires a regular weekly commitment to help us ensure we can provide our kennel staff with the help, support and continuity needed to maintain an effective working environment.

I cannot commit to the timings for the Volunteer Canine Assistant shift between 8-11am?

Unfortunately, this role requires attendance between 8-11am as this is when most of our kennel tasks take place. An afternoon shift may be introduced in the near future so please check back if this is more suitable or take a look at our other volunteering roles.

What footwear/clothing will I need to wear?

We provide volunteers with a volunteer t-shirt and a high-visibility vest when they are outside. We also provide any Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required.

Please note that suitable footwear is required for walking dogs.  No open footwear such as flip flops may be worn for health and safety purpose. Volunteer Canine Assistants will also be required to provide wellies whilst cleaning the kennels.
