Make a difference

You can make a huge difference to the animals here at St Giles Animal Rescue by volunteering – here’s how.

Volunteering

Volunteering is an enjoyable way of helping a rescue animal and can be very rewarding for both you and the animal. We have a range of volunteering roles from dog walking to cat cuddling, helping raise much-needed funds or home visiting. You will meet like-minded people and enjoy developing or learning new skills.

We encourage and value volunteers from all members of the community so please come and join us. Due to insurance reasons, sadly we are unable to have any volunteers on-site under the age of 16 years. All volunteers at the centre need to have an up-to-date suitable tetanus injection, cleared by their GP, be able to commit to at least 5 hours a month and participate in a health and safety course run by our volunteer coordinator, Karen Cridland.

We run regular training and catch-up sessions with our registered volunteers. There are also opportunities for people to become volunteer home visitors. For more information they can email to contact the home visit co-ordinator, Lin.
