Volunteer Vacancies


Kent Greyhound Rescue relies completely on our band of dedicated volunteers, who are key to our success in rehoming around 190 dogs per annum. We have no paid staff and we are now looking to recruit new volunteers (unpaid) to help with the charity as we continue to grow.  You will need the relevant experience for role in which you are applying and be able to commit to a set number of hours per week, depending on the role. 

We receive no funding from the racing industry or the government, so are extremely grateful to our volunteers and supporters, without whom we would not exist.

We have specific volunteer roles as noted below, but we always need extra help on Saturdays and some Sundays at our events.  The events are listed here.

For our street collections we need volunteers who can come along and help us raise funds and awareness in busy shopping areas.  For other events we need volunteers to help with the stall, the tombola, the busy ball pool, judging at one of our dog shows, comparing at the dog shows or just wandering about an event with a KGR kennel dog.  If you can help, we would very grateful if you could let us know as far in advance as possible here.

However, please only apply for a volunteer position if you have the necessary skills and also the time to commit.  We are all volunteers and don't have a dedicated personnel department, so time spent getting new volunteers on board takes time away from other important tasks - please ensure you have the ongoing time commitment before applying.

We use private boarding kennels so we do not have volunteer vacancies helping at the kennels with cleaning and feeding.  

Because of our organisational structure we are unable to offer volunteering to anyone under 18, including DoE experience.

Please click on the relevant vacancy for more information.  On receipt of your email you will be sent a volunteer application form for completion - we aim to reply to all emails within 7-10 days but it may be longer at busy times.
