Volunteers are welcome any day between 8am – 5pm

We really love it when volunteers come along at 8am to just help dog walk or to help clean, this really makes a huge difference to the daily routine.

If you would like to have some extra training on cleaning and daily routine in the kennels or catteries please ask a member of the team who will help you further.

If you are a young volunteer (aged 12 to 16) you are also welcome but you must bring an adult with you, unfortunately due to health and safety reasons we cannot allow any child 12 years or under to volunteer .

It’s easy to become a volunteer at NCAR

Give the rescue a call on 01745 560546 – They will be able to book you in for a volunteer interview (these are held every Thursday and Friday at NCAR)
When attending the interview this will be an informal chat with an NCAR staff member, we will take this time to learn more about your intrests, skills and ways you can help our charity with volunteering. We wil also fill out a volunteer form with you at this time.

We will then notify you via email with further information about any volunteer oppertunities we may have available at that particular time to suit you.

Volunteering at NCAR – From 1st October *Important information, please read*

Due to the number of volunteers who want to walk dogs at NCAR, for Health and safety reasons we have had to implement the following procedure which will be fully explained in reception when you come and visit us.

You can contact our Volunteer Manager (Jean Sellers) by calling 01745 560546 or emailing jeansellers@ncar.org.uk

 All volunteers must:

1. Attend an interview to discuss the volunteer oppertunities available (pre arranged – please call on 01745 560546) and complete a volunteer registration form

2. Agree to attend a short induction presentation

3. Be given an Volunteer ID card on your first visit as a volunteer

We regret that we can no longer allow children under 12 years to accompany adults walking dogs.

Children aged 12 – 16 years can accompany an adult, but we must stress that the adult must be the one that walks the dog (we can provide a 2nd lead if the child would also like to hold the dog)

Any existing volunteers need to attend an induction 10 min presentation + dvd within a month from 1st October.

We must stress that this is purely for your own safety and our insurance purposes.

We look forward to seeing you soon and volunteering for NCAR
