We have incredible volunteers who generously share their time with us

As a charity, we rely on their support to help with many aspects of our work, from fundraising to dog walking, grounds maintenance to cat cuddling, collecting donations to helping at events.

We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic and dedicated people who want to help out and be a part of something which does make a huge difference. It really is true that with your help, we can do so much more for animals in need. 

Here are just some of the volunteering opportunities available at Margaret Green Animal Rescue:
