Scottish Animal Welfare recruit volunteers all year round. We have a range of volunteering opportunities ranging from fundraising to assisting Animal Welfare Officers attend incident of injured wildlife. Below is a short description of the opportunities on offer and what you can hope to achieve from giving up your free time. Please note that volunteer positions are highly sought after and as such, not all applicants will be successful.
As we are a not for profit organisation in existence solely for the advancement of animal welfare, we receive no government or lottery funding and therefore, rely solely on donations from the general public to ensure we can continue our vital work throughout Scotland.
Fundraising plays a vital part in the organisations success and as such, can be very rewarding knowing that you are raising money to ensure that we can help as many animals as possible! Remember, all money raised goes directly to helping Scotland's animals, our staff are volunteers!
Fundraising also allows you to represent the organisation in the public domain and share your passion for the advancement of animal welfare with like minded people.
