Volunteering with PDSA
Coronavirus: impact on volunteering with PDSA
Due to the Coronavirus crisis, we have temporarily paused all volunteering with PDSA and we are not recruiting any new volunteers at this time.
We have temporarily closed all our charity shops, our veterinary services are delivering emergency services only and some of our events have been postponed or cancelled.
We don’t know how long this situation will last, but we’ll update this page once it’s safe to re-start our volunteering activity and we really hope you’ll decide to come and support us.
Existing volunteers can find out what's happening where you volunteer on our dedicated page.
Volunteering is a great way to help our charity and you can volunteer in PDSA charity shops, in our Pet Hospitals or even in our offices. Whether you are looking to learn a new skill, enhance your CV or you just want to help us, we’re bound to have a volunteering opportunity available for you
If you love pets and want to support the work we do, volunteering for us can be the perfect way to help. We rely on our amazing volunteers to help out in our shops, offices and even our pet hospitals. Every hour you can spare makes a huge difference to us.
PDSA has nearly 6,000 volunteers a year across the country so if you volunteer with us you’ll to meet plenty of new people. We value our volunteers which is why we make sure that your volunteering can fit around your everyday life. It’s important to us that our volunteers enjoy working for PDSA so we strive to make sure all our volunteers feel like part of the team and are happy in their role. We welcome volunteers with a variety of skills and from a variety of backgrounds, who are aged 18 and above. If you’re interested, take a look at roles local to you.
