Volunteers

The KWWSPCA is a Volunteer Organisation, it has no paid employees.  All the work done in the Society, the running of its Animal Shelter, its TNR (trap, neuter and return) work with feral cats, the management and staffing of its Charity Shop, Noah’s Ark, its fund raising and all the other activities involved in the work of an Animal Rescue Charity is done on a volunteer basis.  The Society is so very grateful to all the wonderful volunteers that keeps it going.

Would you like to become a volunteer at the KWWSPCA Animal Shelter?

We are looking for volunteers to work at the KWWSPCA animal shelter near Athgarvan in Co. Kildare. The work is entirely voluntary, nobody in the KWWSPCA is paid for what they do; the reward comes through the work and the dogs and other animals that are helped. We require hard working, dependable volunteers who will not let us down, regardless of weather, because our dogs need care every day whether it’s raining, snowing, cold or, hot.The work is primarily outdoor work and it invloves being cold and wet a lot of the time. It is not just walking and cuddling cute dogs. We have dogs of every size and breed, There’s also poop scooping, feeding, cleaning and this work is not for the faint hearted. You need to be fit and strong, have no physical impairments such as back or shoulder issues, you need to be well used to dogs and have no fear or nervousness around any dogs whether they are big, small, or restricted breed. You should be able to attend on your own, and you should have your own transport as our shelter is not serviced by public transport. You should be over 21 years old, and we are looking for people who are available on weekdays from 8am to 1pm, 12.30 pm to 5pm (and even later in the summertime) , or people who are available all day from 8am to closing time. We do not currently need week-end staff. You should be able to work as part of a team, be prepared to work by the rules, and be happy to work under the supervision of the core volunteer on duty. You must be dependable, we need people who will commit to certain days and times, otherwise we cannot properly function and it is the dogs who end up suffering by being deprived of their walks and basic care.The rewards come in the shape of seeing a dog improving dramatically from the time they come to us, to the time they leave our shelter with their new family. You will feel rewarded in the knowledge that you are part of the team that can make this happen, and that your contribution matters.Do you think you can make this commitment?If so, please complete and return the volunteer application form that you will find in this link https://docs.google.com/…/1p5tlWWL8jIDXoclF0Drivf…/edit
