Bristol Animal Rescue Centre is hugely supported by the work of our wonderful Volunteers. We simply couldn’t do all the great things we do for the animals in our care without their help and support.
There are lots of volunteer roles at Bristol A.R.C. offering a real variety of ways to get involved. Our volunteers help us with all areas of our work, from the hugely popular animal focused roles (like dog walking), to fundraising and events help and everything in-between. The roles on offer change regularly, depending on the needs of the animals in our care and our wider staff teams, so please do keep an eye on our Volunteer Vacancies below for updates.
We recognise and value our volunteers for the wonderful ways that they get stuck in and help us to provide the best care for the thousands of animals that come through our doors every year. Every volunteer role is important and valued by the team here at Bristol A.R.C. We know time is precious, and we hugely appreciate every minute that is donated.
What do our Volunteers do?
Our volunteers support us throughout all areas of our work, assisting our staff team to deliver the best possible care and support for the animals that we look after.
Please note that due to the nature of our work, the majority of our volunteering roles are for ages 18+ only. There are however many ways our younger supporters can help the animals in our care, head on over to our Get Inspired page for some great ideas, or contact our fundraising team for more details!
