Adoption Support Volunteer

Chorlton, main office

4 hours per week for at least 4-6 months



RSPCA guinea pigs


Got some spare time? Love a happy ending? Interested in helping animals? RSPCA Manchester and Salford is looking for a volunteer to help us with our happy endings.

We rehome 500 animals a year that have previously suffered abandonment, cruelty or neglect. One of the best bits of our job is seeing animals moving on to stable and loving adoptive homes. The adoption process also involves some paperwork, data entry and record keeping. That’s where you come in......

How many hours do you need me for?
We are looking for a volunteer who can offer a minimum of 4 hours a week for at least 4 to 6 months. The post is based in our Chorlton office and hours could be worked any day except Sundays and Mondays.

What will I be doing?
The role is predominantly administrative but there is scope for increasing the range of duties to include taking animals to routine vet visits and keeping our foster carers stocked with supplies. We don’t currently have a spare vehicle so you would need to have your own if you wanted to do these additional tasks. We can pay a small mileage allowance.

Do I need animal welfare experience?
No. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and we couldn’t operate without them; some are previous adopters, some are hoping to move into the charity or animal welfare sector, and others volunteer with us following a period of change such as illness or retirement.

What can I expect from RSPCA Manchester and Salford?
- A clear role with all necessary training and supervision provided to you

- Out of pocket expenses, where this is agreed as part of the job role

- Regular opportunities to meet other volunteers e.g. at social or volunteer recognition events

- A chance to enhance your CV and work experience

- The opportunity to feel good about helping RSPCA Manchester and Salford, one of the busiest and most successful animal welfare charities in the region!
