At Margaret Green Animal Rescue, we have an inspirational team, committed to providing the highest possible standards of animal care. We also have a number of charity shops located around Dorset, which generate income for the charity.

We are now looking to expand our Board of Trustees (currently a team of 5 trustees), strengthening the range of skills available to support the charity to achieve its objectives.

We are keen to expand the diversity of our Board of Trustees, so if you think you have something to contribute to this wonderful cause, we would welcome your application.

We meet in Dorset and Devon on a pre-planned basis six times per year and, occasionally, on an ad-hoc basis, and would prefer candidates to be based within our catchment area.

This is a key voluntary role working alongside a skilled and dedicated team within this highly respected, regional Animal Welfare charity. So, if you have a love of animals and feel you can bring that passion and energy to help us in our work, as well as your expertise, we would love to hear from you.
