Volunteering at the JSPCA

Our volunteers are a valuable part of our team and ensure that we are able to provide our services across the Island: helping with the animals, assisting around out sites or helping at fundraising events. Previous experience or knowledge is an advantage, although training will be provided where required. We ask that anyone volunteering is friendly, enthusiastic, compassionate, happy to work within a small team and doesn’t mind getting a bit dirty!


Between the hours of 8am and 4pm, Monday to Sunday, we need volunteers to assist with the daily care needs of our dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents, ferrets and more!  As you can appreciate, there is a waiting list for weekend positions, however we will be in touch if there is availability.

Charity Shop

Open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm, our charity shop volunteers will be asked to provide a high-quality service by efficiently sorting, pricing and displaying donations, and dealing with all donors, customers and fellow volunteers in a friendly and courteous manner. Shop volunteers need to be over 18 years old and previous experience in a retail environment is an advantage.

Fundraising and Events

Activities may include planning and preparation of fundraising events through to setting up and running fundraising activities on the day. This role would suit people who have a friendly and enthusiastic manner, enjoy engaging with the public, don’t mind being on their feet all day, and potentially physically demanding tasks.

Maintenance and gardening

Are you a tradesperson, good at D.I.Y. or naturally green-fingered? We are always happy to hear from anyone who can offer their time and skills to help us grow!
