Please Note: You must be 16 or over to volunteer at our shelter or shops. Please do not apply if you are under 16 as we won’t be able to take your application forward.

        Volunteer at the shelter

        Volunteering at RSPCA Little Valley Animal Shelter is an enriching experience that allows individuals to directly contribute to the well-being of animals in need. Whether it’s spending time walking dogs, offering companionship to cats or rabbits, or assisting with cleaning and feeding duties, volunteers play a vital role in supporting the shelter’s operations. By lending a helping hand, volunteers not only ensure the animals receive the care and attention they deserve but also provide valuable assistance to the staff, allowing them to focus more on animal care and rehabilitation efforts. Each act of volunteering, whether big or small, makes a significant difference in the lives of these animals and helps create a nurturing environment where they can thrive while awaiting their forever homes.
