Love dogs & have time to spare?

Pro Dogs Direct is run almost entirely by volunteers and we couldn’t do what we do for our dogs without them.  Our volunteers perform a wide range of roles including admin, fundraising, transport, home checking and, of course, fostering our dogs when they come into rescue – looking after them in their own homes until we find the ideal forever home for each one.

It goes without saying that our volunteers love dogs and, whatever their role with us, they know they are playing a vital part in saving our dogs and securing happier futures for them. 

As we expand to rescue more dogs we need more volunteers.  If you’d like to help, take a look at the current opportunities below; some roles are specific to an individual volunteer, others are open to many.  Whatever your particular skill set, if you have a few hours to spare each week and would like to support our work, we’d love to hear from you.
