Keep in touch
Our volunteers are a key part of our team and we can't wait to have you back! Please keep in touch with us while some of our sites are closed and volunteering suspended.
We've recently published the first issue of Volunteer Life, our brand new magazine for PDSA volunteers, which takes over from PDSA News.
Find out what we’re up to elsewhere on our main Facebook page, or read some of the heart-warming stories that you make possible by donating your time to us.
We also have a Volunteer Facebook group which we encourage all of our volunteers to join. This is a closed group just for PDSA volunteers so please remember to answer the membership questions when you ask to join.
What's happening where you volunteer?
Our Pet Hospitals are currently operating emergency services only, and some have had to close temporarily. We have therefore had to suspend all volunteering at our hospitals until further notice. If you are an existing volunteer, please join the PDSA Volunteers Facebook group to find out more and get regular updates.
We now have volunteering opportunities across the country. You can find out more about our charity shops and any volunteering opportunities on our charity shops page.
For the safety of all of our amazing volunteers and staff members, our teams are currently working from home wherever possible. We have therefore had to suspend all volunteering in our offices until further notice. If you are an existing volunteer, please join the PDSA volunteers Facebook group to find out more and get regular updates.
Obviously we want to help stop the spread of the virus and keep everyone safe. You can help to stop the spread by following the NHS’s advice, including making sure you wash your hands regularly. We’ll also have government advice posters up around all of our sites.
As an animal lover, you might be interested in reading our advice for pet owners covering some of the most frequently asked questions on the Coronavirus and pets. Read our vets’ advice on our blog.
