Volunteering

Whatever your talents, we can use your help!

We rely on a wonderful band of volunteers that raise the funds to keep the rescue centre going and help care for the dogs in the kennels while they are waiting for new homes.

We need helpers for events, our shops in Annan, Dalbeattie, Newton Stewart, Dumfries, Thornhill and at the kennels near Glencaple.

We also, occasionally, need foster carers for dogs that do not settle well in the kennels.

Help at the kennels may include reception work, administration, gardening and DIY as well as dog walking, grooming and socialising. To find out more contact the centre.

We have no administrative offices and we keep our overheads to a minimum. We welcome donations large and small. Small change collections will be counted and banked. Cash donations can be brought into our shops or the kennels at Dovecotewells, Glencaple.

Donations as cheques should be sent to the Treasurer at the rescue centre or hand delivered to the shops or centre. We do not usually acknowledge donations under £25 unless we are especially asked to do so.

We can claim gift aid on your donation if you are a tax payer and provide your name and full address with your donation.

We would appreciate donations of non-perishable goods for tombolas and raffles. There are many of these during the year and it does get quite difficult to find suitable items. If you have any unwanted gifts or can provide a bottle or two this would be a great help. Goods can be taken to either of our shops or to the kennels.

We would like to make a plea to all supporters to help out at one or other of the events.

If you want any more information just contact us on 01387 770210 any day between 12 and 4.
