Volunteer positions

Canine volunteer
Nelson Centre

Canine volunteer

We need help to care for the dogs at our centre. This role requires a good level of fitness, and confidence handling large dogs.

You must be over 16, willing to walk dogs in all weathers, and be able to commit to at least one 2 hour shift per week for a period of at least 6 months.

What you will be doing:

  • Cleaning of pens, washing dishes, laundry.
  • Providing food and water at scheduled times.
  • Socialising timid dogs and enriching the lives of residents by petting, playing, training and walking.

All new volunteers will be required to attend a Health and Safety Induction (which includes a tour of the Centre), as well as a Canine Induction. These are usually held once a month on a Wednesday morning, or occasionally at the weekend.

If you have any questions, please call us on 03 547 7171 or drop into the centre.
