We rely on the generosity of pet owners and veterinary professionals who give up their time to support our work in a number of ways. Ways you can help us include:
Volunteering at donation sessions
Our donation sessions are really busy days and an extra pair of hands really does make a huge difference in ensuring our team can make the day a great experience for all of our donors and their owners. You’ll help our team set up for the session, meet and greet our lifesavers and take their photos for our Facebook page.
We particularly need volunteers in the following locations but would love to hear from anyone interested:
- Buckinghamshire (Newport Pagnell and Milton Keynes)
- Lancashire (Burnley)
- Lincolnshire (Boston)
- North Derbyshire (Alfreton)
- Northamptonshire (Northampton and Higham Ferrers)
- Warwickshire (Coventry, Leamington Spa and Rugby)
- West Yorkshire (Wetherby)
Volunteering at our Loughborough Office
Our base in Loughborough is where all the organisation takes place for our sessions. A range of administration tasks need to be completed at our office and processing unit including booking session appointments, sending out letters for our sessions and organising marketing literature to be sent out to our host venues.
Spreading the word
Do you know someone with a dog that would be suitable to donate blood? At the moment, we particularly need to raise awareness with owners of the following breeds as our stock of Negative blood is low. For more information, please click here. We post session details and appeal for owners in certain areas to come forward using our Facebook and Twitter pages and would really appreciate if you could like and share our posts.
Dog shows and pet events are great opportunities for us to tell others about the charity too. If you regularly attend events, we would love to hear from you. If you’re able to hand out leaflets even represent us on a stall, it’s a great way for us to raise awareness.
