There are a number of ways you can help support our charity and our animals.
We always need more volunteers to help - so if you have any spare time why not help us.


Volunteers are welcome any day between 11am - 4pm (even on Mondays when we are shut to the public)
If you are a young volunteer (aged 12 to 16) you are also welcome but you must bring an adult with you, unfortunately due to health and safety reasons we cannot allow any child 12 years or under to volunteer .

It's easy to become a volunteer at NCAR

Just come to the rescue, fill out a volunteer registration form, you will be given a health and saftey presentation and a form to sign to agree to the H&S policy. then you will be added to the NCAR Volunteer database.
There after you are welcome to visit whenever you wish to. We look forward to welcoming you as an NCAR volunteer

Volunteering at NCAR - From 1st October 2011 *Important Information, please read*

Due to the number of volunteers who want to walk dogs at NCAR, for Health and safety reasons we have had to implement the following procedure which will be fully explained in reception when you come and visit us.
All volunteers must in future:-
1.       Complete our new registration form and produce ID on their first visit.
2.       Agree to attend a short induction presentation
We regret that we can no longer allow children under 12 to accompany adults walking dogs.
Children aged 12 – 16 years can accompany an adult, but we must stress that the adult must be the one that walks the dog (we can provide a 2nd lead if the child would also like to hold the dog)
Any existing volunteers need to attend an induction 10 min presentation + dvd within a month from 1st October.
We must stress that this is purely for your own safety and our insurance purposes.
We look forward to seeing you soon and volunteering for NCAR
