We couldn't do our work without the help of our amazing volunteers. If you have time to spare, there's a role for you!

What kind of volunteering can I do?

We have lots of roles for different levels of experience or expertise. We do not have an animal centre so unfortunately don't have many roles interacting with our animals but the contribution of every volunteer makes a difference to the lives of vulnerable animals in need. If you're looking to meet new people, develop skills or just want to give back to the community - there's a role for you.

Volunteer in our Charity Shops

We have seven shops across Norfolk that help us to raise the money needed for us to carry out our vital work.

Our Charity Shop volunteers support our fantastic retail team in selling and organising donated goods for our shops.

We have roles in the stock room, on the shop floor or behind the till so whatever your preferences – there’ll be a role for you!

Volunteer as a Fosterer

Fosterers provide temporary care and safe accommodation for our animals whilst they are waiting for their forever homes.

Fostering is such an important role within the Branch as many animals that come into our care have suffered from neglect and do not settle well in cattery or kennel environments.

We primarily care for cats, dogs and rabbits but occasionally have exotics such as birds and reptiles too which also if you are able to take these in please do get in touch! We cover all expenses such as food, equipment and vet bills.

We run events throughout the year to help raise awareness and raise money for our Branch.

Our Events Assistant role is really important as it helps us to raise awareness of our vital work and raise money for the Branch.

We hold several fun events throughout the year including Santa Paws at the Forum in Norwich and also take part in big local events such as the Royal Norfolk Show.

If you like meeting new people, engaging with the local community and getting stuck in, this could be the role for you!

Volunteer as a Trustee

Trustees are a crucial part of our Branch as they oversee it's overall strategy and governance.

Our Board of Trustees meet throughout the year in order to assess the performance of the Branch and also guide its strategy to ensure we are meeting our core charitable objectives.

If you have professional experience that you think will support our charitable mission, we’d love to hear from you.

We are particularly looking to hear from applicants with a marketing, fundraising or veterinary background.
