Volunteering at PDSA

Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions volunteering in our Pet Hospitals, offices, fundraising groups and events remains closed.

But our shops are now back open – with increased safety measures – and have lots of exciting opportunities available.

Volunteer with us

We’re incredibly grateful for the invaluable contribution our volunteers make – over 6,000 people volunteer their time to PDSA every year, helping us to not only save pets but also to change people’s lives. Last year we treated over 388,000 pets, bringing peace of mind to their owners – and we wouldn’t have been able to provide this fantastic service without the income raised by our generous volunteers.

Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to volunteer with us. Whatever your skills, background or experience we’ll have a role at PDSA for you. Long and short term opportunities, 3 hours a week or 30. It is a fantastic way to learn new skills, meet new people and get involved with your local community. Take a look at roles local to you.

We provide full training to all new volunteers, and support you with ongoing coaching to help you thrive in a fun, rewarding and challenging environment. Our volunteers also have free access to our Volunteer Hub, which is full of useful training courses and development materials, plus information to support your wellbeing.
