Having put in place some new policies and procedures with the dogs and the cats we are now ready to start taking on new volunteers. We are looking for the following

             - Dog walkers

             - Cat socialisers

             - Kennel Cleaners

             - Cattery Cleaners

If you are interested in volunteering for any of the above roles please fill out our application form and return it to us. Due to high demand for volunteer roles we are not always able to offer inductions to everyone who applies. Please give us as much information in your form as possible so we can see what you can offer to help us.

Once we have received and reviewed your application form we will be in touch to organise a suitable date to come in and do an induction with a senior member of staff.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to hearing from you.

 Please visit rescue review and leave us some feedback on your time spent at the shelter even if you haven't had a cat or dog from us. Thank you.

Have you or your WARS pet got a story to tell?

We are looking for stories to publish in our newsletters. 

Have you rehomed one of our dogs or cats, especially one of our long-stay residents? 

Or are you a regular volunteer with a story to tell about your experiences here? 

We would love to get a brief article from you, so we can look through and choose the best ones to publish.


We really need your support...
