Volunteering

Whatever your talents, we can use your help! We rely on a wonderful band of volunteers that raise the funds to keep the rescue centre going and help care for the dogs in the kennels while they are waiting for new homes.

Fundraising

We rely on the local community to provide the majority of the funds that keep the rescue centre going. Fund raising events are organised right across the region.

What would we do without volunteers!

We need help first and foremost to run our shops, as well as helping at events and publicising them, and manning can collections, as well as promoting our website and facebook to family and friends, and much more. We need volunteers to walk our dogs, play with them and groom them. We need help sometimes with administration and telephoning. We need volunteers for gardening, DIY and decorating.

Any time you can offer us is very much appreciated. We just need you to be enthusiastic and reliable so turn up and rally round for the sake of the dogs. Call the Centre on 01387 770210 any day between 12 and 4 to discuss what you can offer, and request a Volunteer application form.

Fundraising

We rely on the local community to provide the majority of the funds that keep the rescue centre going. Our biggest source of income is undoubtedly our shops, all of which are manned by volunteers, and they have a page of their own on this website, but other fundraising events are organised regularly right across the region - can shakes, coffee mornings, sponsored walks and so on.

We are always grateful when members of the community take the initiative to dream up and organise their own fundraising event for us. Nowadays, it is made easier to collect the donations or sponsorship via our virginmoneygiving page - create your event, then your supporters can donate online, Virgin claims the Gift Aid on our behalf and transfers the money into our bank account!

In the past, some local communities have raised enough money (£1000) to sponsor a kennel of their own for a year, including Dalbeattie, Galloway, Moffat, Stewartry, Kirkpatrick Fleming and Kirkcudbright have sponsored kennels.
