Volunteers are the Lifeblood of the crucial work done by the Bristol Dogs and Cats Home and the RSPCA Bristol Animal Clinic. Whatever your skills, there will be a way for you to lend us a helping hand. All our volunteers need to be aged over 18, but you can commit as much or little time as you can spare.

If you have good communication skills and like meeting people, then maybe working as a charity shop assistant at our shops either on-site in St Philips or in Gloucester Road would be ideal for you.

Fundraising and event volunteers are always needed to help us raise the £1.6 million we need to cover our annual running costs.

Help out at Open Day, Fun Day & Dog Show and various fairs as well as some external events such as local dog shows and many other occasions. Help is always needed at collection days and occasionally in the fundraising office to help with basic admin. This is an opportunity to make friends (human and animal!) and really benefit our cause.

With so many animals to care for our Animal Care Assistants (ACA's) are in need of a little helping hand. If you have time to spare on a regular basis and would like to gain some valuable experience, why not apply to become one of our Volunteer ACA's.

We are very grateful to our team of Dog Walkers who help to exercise our canine friends. For more information about DOG WALKING, PLEASE CLICK HERE
