It takes a lot of volunteers to run an animal rescue and we are always keen to find more volunteers. You don't have to dedicate all your time to the charity, just whatever time you can spare would be great. Here are just some of the ways you can help us by volunteering, but if you feel you have a skill that would benefit LCH then please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Transport runs For those of you who want to help in animal rescue, but cannot foster, how about volunteering in transport runs and home checking? Find out more on this Facebook group -The Animal Team Transport Network.
Pets at Home Events We often hold "Meet & Greet" events at Pets at Home in Pool, Bodmin & St Austell. Volunteers are always needed at these events to hand out leaflets, talk to customers, offer information about LCH. Just a couple of hours at the weekend would be great.
Behind the Scenes Whilst we have volunteers that are "hands on" when it comes to collecting dogs, taking them to vets and generally "dealing" with the dogs, we also have many volunteers behind the scenes. The amount of admin involved in running a rescue is immense. Volunteers take care of social media, website, marketing, poster and leaflet drops and fundraising. We also have people on the look out for available grants and bid writers. If you have any skills to offer behind the scenes to allow the "hands on" volunteers more time with the dogs then please do get in touch.
Spread the word We need help to advertise the dogs we have available for re-homing. Visit our Facebook page and share the images of the dogs to help us to reach a much wider audience.
