Animals in Need Guernsey - UK need your support.
We are all volunteers who are always happy to have help. Whether it's for a
few minutes, a few hours, help is always welcome and very much appreciated.
If you are interested in helping us in any way please complete the online
Here is a short list of what you might like to get involved with.
We often have to transport a dog either to or from a foster home across the
UK, or from the UK to the Channel Islands, to the vet, or over a long
distance from a home to a safe place.
We sometimes have to rely on a team of
volunteer drivers to help us to move the dogs safely as we cannot always do
it ourselves. This is not something that happens everyday or even every week
but it helps us to have a team of drivers in the UK and Channel Islands that
can be called on when needed.
Dog Foster Carers
We rely on a network of foster carers who will care for our dogs in their
homes to asses the dog and look after them as if they were their own. All
potential foster carers are home checked volunteers and their individual experience and
home circumstances are taken into account.
It is not about how clean your house is or how big your garden is, it is
about the safety and happiness of the dog.
Home Checkers are invaluable in making sure the right dog goes to the right
home. We are always looking for volunteers to undertake home checks (all
potential applicants are subject to a home check and follow up).
Home Checkers need to
be experienced, responsible dog owners, able to ask the right questions, have
a sense of humour and answer potential owners queries, particularly first time
dog owners. As well as informing you of what to do we will provide you with
all the relevant home check forms.
Fundraisers - Friends of Animals in Need
Yes we need YOU, to help organise and think up new fun ideas and help us to
raise money for our dogs.
We are always looking for Fundraisers to help raise vital funds towards our
vets, kennel, food and many other expenses. Maybe you could help out at an
organised event or even organise your own event.
Perhaps you have a craft
skill and could make items for us to sell, or you may have some spare time at
home to write emails to ask for donations for auctions, raffles etc. Your help
no matter how little is very important to us.
You might not have the time to give a dog a permanent home but you love the getting out and about with a furry friend. If this is you, then why not take one of our dogs for a walk either be it daily or once a week, you still would be making a difference to them moving forward by helping them to meet different people.
Any help is appreciated, from negotiators to collectors etc.
If you have any kind of skills that you feel could be helpful to Animals in
Need or you have any ideas of how you could help or what we would benefit
from then please contact us.
