Volunteer With Us

We are always in need of help in our small hospital room. If you have the time, interest and commitment, we could do with your help. With no paid staff, we are entirely reliant on our volunteer team.

All training will be provided but, and we cannot stress this enough, you MUST be reliable and committed to coming in on your specified day. We are a very small charity who can only accommodate two or three volunteers on site each day so if you don’t come in on your allocated day, the work of other volunteers doubles and we have to delay incoming patients. Due to insurance restrictions we are unable to take on volunteers under the age of 18.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a small home based rescue, not a large animal centre and at least 80% of our intake is common garden birds, so please bear that in mind when applying.


Animal Care Assistants

Our Volunteers come in during the mornings, from around 9.30 am and help to clean out our hospital patients and aviaries, prepare feed, medicate and treat minor ailments, collect and release animals and also help with fundraising. The main focus is always to ensure that the areas holding the patients are clean and that they all have fresh bedding, food and water.

Duties involved would be

  • cleaning and feeding of patients.
  • preparing cages for new admissions
  • restocking supplies, including towels, washed bowls, newspapers and advising of any shortages
  • assisting with aviary cleaning


Contact Us

Though we wish we could, we are not as yet able to run a 24 hour service and very often we are so busy that we are unable to immediately answer the phone , so please do bear with us and do leave us a message. It is likely only to be a few minutes before we return your call.
