Our volunteers/fundraisers are working tirelessly to help the sanctuary. Perhaps you would like to join them? Activities include:
- helping out at the sanctuary itself
- working in the shop
- walking dogs
- grooming animals
- help with street collections
- take a collection box for home/business
- organized events
- making handicrafts to sell at craft fairs
- Bake a cake for the open day
…and much more.
Whatever talent you have can be used to help animals. Perhaps you have your own suggestion? Feel free to drop us a line and let us know!
If you’re interested in volunteering at Mid-Antrim Animal Sanctuary, just come up during opening hours (12 noon to 4:30pm) and ask for Margaret or John (manager and assistant manager, respectively) who can get you started, and take you through our requirements for volunteers.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is no longer possible for children under the age of 16 years to volunteer at the sanctuary without adult supervision. While we recognise that many children do benefit from helping animals, and vice versa, we are not covered by insurance. As a charity we can not afford to take this risk.
Those children who wish to continue walking dogs may do so if their parent/guardian agrees to supervise the activity throughout. However, we will be able to continue to take children on work placements, arranged by their school, as it is their school’s own insurance which covers this.
We hope you understand our position, and that we will have your continued support.
