Adults and friend groups
At Ark we require assistance from willing volunteers in a number of areas:

  • Admin
  • Repairs
  • Completing tasks that require a mature thinking (We have young puppies that need special attention , as well as adult dogs that are under rehabilitation that need a responsible hand)
  • Assisting with coordinating the community service volunteers
  • Help with fundraising
  • Help with running events and projects

We do ask that if you are interested in volunteering that you commit to at least 3 visits , as it takes time to get use to the processes and feel as if you are being of help.
If this interests you, please come through to offer your help, or contact us.
