Kent Greyhound Rescue relies completely on our band of dedicated volunteers, who are key to our success in rehoming around 150 dogs per annum. 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.
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.
