Become a volunteer
There are a couple of ways you can become a volunteer;
Sign up to be a Dog Walking volunteer, by registering your details and booking on to one of our induction sessions. The inductions take place on Fridays at 2pm and you will need to bring ID and confirmation of your current address with you. The induction takes about 1 hour including your first dog walk!
Apply to work in the kennels and help with cleaning, feeding, exercising, environmental enrichment and bathing dogs. Please complete the application form below and send it to us. You will receive an invitation to attend for a taster/induction session and on completion of this you will be asked to commit to a particular day/time. This enables us to allow as many people as possible to get involved and to ensure that there are safe numbers at the Dogs Home at all times.
Transporting dogs to vets:
We are looking for people with dog secure cars to volunteer to help with transporting dogs to veterinary appointments outside the normal vet visits to the home.
Volunteer to supervise and collect donations made to Cardiff Dogs Home that are stationed at your local supermarkets and shops. You would need to monitor our donation box and once full, it will need to be emptied and brought down to the dogs home for the donations made to us flowing nicely.
To volunteer you must be:
- over 18
- able to commit to a specific day/days a week.
- willing to get involved in the cleaning and organising of the kennels, feeding, exercising and bathing dogs.
- OR willing to walk dogs at a time that suits you between 8am and 4pm 7 days a week and until 6pm on Thursdays.
