Volunteering at Friend

We really need regular volunteers to help with admin, building & maintenance, fundraising, event management, animal care, kitchen & catering, and the general day to day running of the sanctuary, as well as special volunteering for our events.

Please first fill out the form below to let us know your skills and if you are reliably able to do regular weekly or monthly volunteering and/or if you are available for event volunteering. With your permission on the form we can add you to our volunteer mailing list for future communications. We get a huge amount of volunteer requests though so please don’t expect an immediate personal response. Thank you
