Welcome to our new website! To find what it means for us as a charity, and you as a supporter please read more about it here.

We need your help! There are many options for volunteers with a wide range of experience. Join one of our teams and be the difference in animal welfare, where it really counts.

From qualified vets, vet nurses and vet students to volunteers with no previous veterinary experience - we can use your skills. From dogs and cats to chimps to cheetahs, we offer a range of volunteering options where you can work with a variety of species. We welcome volunteers to join our teams and bring their energy and strength to our cause.

We also offer specific training projects for vet students and newly graduated vets, who are looking to gain practical experience in the field, as harnessing the idealism that fires them to become vets, empowers what we do and strengthens our recruitment options for the future!
