Celebrating our amazing volunteers

We want to say a massive thank you to our amazing volunteers for their invaluable support which helps us to provide the best possible environment for our residents. Our volunteers carry out such a wide-range of tasks and activities and we wouldn’t be able to do half the things we do without them! 

Our dogs look forward to the dog walkers coming in to take them out either for a walk or a run in our field and to the pet sitters giving them an extra bit of TLC. The Cattery staff are supported by Cattery cleaners and groomers who help to keep the cat pods sparkling clean and the cats looking their best.

If you’ve been into our on-site Charity Shop not only will you have been served by one of our volunteers but behind the scenes volunteers will have spent hours sorting through all the donations we receive and getting them ready for sale. Our coffee mornings and mini-markets are put on and run by a dedicated team of volunteers.

This week we were fortunate to have two members of Sandfords Construction Ltd of Shentstone, carry out jobs from our maintenance list. This included replacing fencing and putting up cupboards and shelving in our kennels and Cattery.

We also have fantastic teams of corporate volunteers who come from companies such as Mars Petcare and Santander, who support us by carrying out practical tasks to help us maintain our site. They usually undertake activities to help us keep our site looking bright and tidy include gardening and painting.

The list of roles our volunteers undertake is endless – from photographer, to videographer from gardener to fundraiser. Whatever they do they make a massive difference to the dogs and cats here at the Centre and for that we are so grateful.
