Volunteers Needed!

10th February 2017

Do you fancy helping with our cats or dogs, or sharing your passion for animals with others?   Oak Tree Animals’ Charity is looking for anyone who would be interested in one of these three important roles:

  • Dog Care and Kennel Volunteers
  • Cat Care Volunteers
  • Event Volunteers

This is a great opportunity to help care for and rehome dogs and cats in Cumbria while helping us promote the charity and our work at Oak Tree Farm and in the community.

The roles are open to anyone over the age of 16 who is interested in the care and welfare of our dogs and cats and who can offer at least two or three hours each week or as an events volunteer to help on a more flexible basis.


Events Volunteer

The Oak Tree Animals’ Charity has grown out of the roots of the Animals’ Refuge, the longest-established animal welfare charity in Cumbria. The charity is working hard to grow and develop and depends on the generous support of local people to help it to maintain its vital work. Events volunteers help to promote the charity and our work. The role will interest anyone who would enjoy meeting and talking to people about their love of animals, at local events, exhibitions and meetings.     A regular time commitment is not needed for this volunteering opportunity.


Dog Care & Kennel Volunteers

Dog care and kennel volunteers work alongside staff to stimulate and enrich the lives of all the dogs living at Oak Tree Farm, stretching their imagination, walking them and playing with them in their runs, spending time with them in the family room and supporting staff with training, as well as helping to keep their kennels clean and organised.


Cat Care Volunteers

Cat care volunteers need plenty of time to cuddle cats! The role is devoted to helping cats to be settled and contented during their time at Oak Tree Farm, helping them to socialise and preparing them for their forever homes, as well as looking after them by helping with feeding and cleaning etc.
