We have over 200 volunteers at Raystede all committed to giving animals a better life.

Their generosity and dedication allows Raystede to provide a caring environment for all our animals.

Our Raystede site can be a busy place and we do our very best to make sure that volunteering is rewarding and enjoyable. Whilst volunteering you will get to meet fellow volunteers and staff, learn new skills and play an active role in the work we do.

Volunteers must be over the age of 16 and, if volunteering onsite at Raystede, have access to their own transport. Volunteers aged between 16-17 years old will need a parent or guardian to sign your application form to say they are happy for you to come and volunteer with us.

We rely on your donations to help animals like Topsy.

When Topsy arrived with us, he was severely underweight and needed a lot of care. We couldn't help the amount of animals we do without your support. Please donate to help more animals get the care they deserve.
