Love the great outdoors? So do our dogs.


NO CURRENT VACANCIES - Due to an overwhelming response of support we are not currently accepting any more kennel volunteers. However help is always needed at our charity, why not fundraise or consider fostering instead?

Who can apply?

  • We're looking for anybody with enthusiasm, a willingness to get stuck in and the commitment to see a job through; if you're not sure if our current opportunities are right for you, get in touch and we can find a way to let you contribute!

  • You will need to be at least 18 years of age

Kennel Assistant - what's involved?

  • exercising dogs both on and off site

  • basic training following Rain Rescue guidelines

  • kennel cleaning

  • general site maintenance, cleaning and other duties

What we are looking for

  • regular commitment and reliability - we are ideally looking for people who can cover 8am - 12pm or 1pm - 5pm. 

  • an interest in dog welfare

  • a willingness to work with dogs that may have anxieties or challenging behaviours

  • able to work both as part of a team and independently

  • willingness to learn and the ability to follow Rain Rescue procedures

  • a reasonable level of fitness

Benefits to you

  • knowing you are helping homeless dogs in need

  • a chance to spend time with dogs without the commitment of ownership

  • stay active and healthy

  • develop your skills and gain experience

  • join a team of like minded people and support a small local charity

This role can be physically demanding and so a reasonable level of fitness is required. The roles usually end up with the rewarding opportunity of spending time with the animals! You will need to be able to work in all weather conditions, punctual and committed, and at least 18 years old.

We'll look after you

The time you give to support us in our work is precious, and in return we promise to give you all the training, support and flexibility you need.

If it's not what you're looking for, why not fundraise instead?
