You can volunteer in so many different ways. Dog walking is great fun and much cheaper than the gym! Cats who are not used to human company need to be cuddled and socialised but don’t worry, we advise you on how to handle the animals and have strict rules regarding the dogs so that you are not sent out with an animal that needs specialist care, as these are handled only by our staff for the protection of the volunteers and of the animals.

The grounds around Ard Jerkyll need to be maintained and looked after, especially in the summer months. We have a sit-on lawnmower for volunteers to use and various tools – we just need the man (or woman) power to go with them …

We always need volunteers to work in our charity shops in Douglas, where you can sort items which are donated or advise customers on their selections.
