If you would like to learn more about volunteering for Teckels, please have a look through the volunteer profiles below which have details of our current vacancies. 

We run the bulk of our service between 9am and 4pm seven days a week.

We appreciate all hours that our volunteers kindly donate to us, and have a variety of roles to suit a variety of abilities. We are ideally looking for volunteers who are able to come regularly (at least one shift per fortnight), as it allows them to get to know the animals, staff and routine easier.


Becoming a New Volunteer 
You will be required to attend a group volunteer induction before starting work at our centre.

Private inductions are possible with prior arrangement and larger volunteer groups can take place on an arranged day of volunteering.

We are unable to accept new volunteers onsite who have not attended an induction.

The induction is designed to help you understand all the opportunities available for volunteering at Teckels and also covers the following:

Inductions are limited to a maximum of ten volunteers per session to ensure that everybody has the time to ask questions and to check understanding. If there are less than two potential volunteers booked for an induction, we may cancel the session and advise a new date. The induction session lasts between 30 minutes and 1 hour depending on questions and group size. Please note, you will not be able to volunteer on the day of the induction unless attending a morning session.

Please note that centre volunteers must be aged 17+ years of age. Those aged 14-17 years old can volunteer with an accompanying adult and in this case both parties must complete the volunteer application process and induction.

Please contact Hannah at for more information.
