The RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) rescues to rehabilitate and rehome unwanted, neglected and abused animals
Volunteers are needed for both kennel and cattery husbandry as well as maintenance and gardening.
A session may consist of:
- Making up feeds
- Hosing & scrubbing
- Emptying soiled litter trays
- Washing bowls, toys, litter trays, carriers etc.
- Removing soiled bedding
- Providing toys and enrichment for the animals
- Walking dogs
- Socialising cats
- General tidying up and cleaning around the centre eg: dusting, cleaning windows, weeding, sweeping up
- Assisting with health checks
- Laundry duties - putting on dirty washing, folding and putting clean laundry away
- Putting away donations
- Emptying bins
The help of a volunteer is vital to the centre, but it is worth bearing in mind that this is not a glamorous job by any stretch of the imagination (you will be dealing with poo and sick!) and it is hard work! (But very rewarding!).
Volunteers will be based at the RSPCA centre at
Brownshill Green Farm,
Coundon Wedge Drive,
Coventry CV5 9DQ
Please note that travel expenses are not paid by the organisation.
How to get involved

This is an external project Warwick Volunteers does not have any involvement with the management of these activities.
Volunteers would need to be able to commit to 1 session per week.
Sessions run from 8:30am - 1:00pm Monday to Friday or 9:00am - 1:00pm Saturday & Sunday.
We are looking for volunteers who are able to follow instructions and use their initiative.
Any volunteers that assist with the animals will need to have an up to date tetanus vaccination and proof of this would need to be provided at induction.
We have found in the past that many volunteers would want to come and just work on one section and do one thing, we need people that are happy to get stuck in and will work with all of the animals here at the centre.
Volunteers will receive health and safety training, receive a volunteer handbook and test and have a 1 to 1 buddy.
This is an external opportunity
Warwick Volunteers cannot be held responsible for external volunteering opportunities advertised, but we do make every effort to ensure that all the information we publish is accurate. We advise volunteers to use their own judgement when selecting potential opportunities, and to check all details concerning prospective volunteering activity with the organisation involved. Please make sure that you have received all necessary training and information regarding your own health and safety before commencing volunteering.
