Become a Volunteer

So you'd like to support Maggie's Rescue, but you're not sure how you can help?

We are a volunteer-run organisation so we are always on the lookout for reliable, animal-loving people who have the time and enthusiasm to help us with our rescue work.

At Maggies we have two types of volunteering
 
1) Casual, which is helping with events like ‘Muddy Paws’ and markets. This will require approximately 5 hours per month of your time, quite often for weekends and public holidays. 
 
2) Essential, regular commitment of helping with animal movements, marketing and fundraising. This more operational type of helping out would require at least 5 hours per week if you can.
 
Leave us your details if you can help us.
