Dog volunteers needed for cleaning, feeding and care duties

We are looking for people who would like to spend 3-4 hours in the mornings (and afternoons too) to look after the residents at APROP. Being a volunteer working with the dogs is the best part of supporting APROP, this is time you get to spend with the ones that matter and that give you so much love, the dogs!

A typical morning shift would cover; letting the dogs out into the play areas, cleaning their rooms, replenishing their water, organising the dog walkers to exercise them, then on their return giving them their breakfast and their medications if they need any. We also spend time on activities such as socialising the dogs with each other, grooming the dogs and cuddling them too!

There are also regular duties such as washing up the dishes (yes, sorry, can’t get out of that one), general tidying up and making sure everything is in its place for the next shift. We always make sure we have two people on each shift, so you would never be alone.

Without volunteers, we cannot run the shelter … if you are interested in finding out more please contact us!

I have been volunteering at APROP since April 2018. You will normally find me there on Tuesday mornings, helping to care for, clean and feed the dogs. In 2019 I adopted Barney, a Podenco from APROP. In fact I have taken a distinct liking to the Podencos and some call me the Pod-Mother! I am also part of the adoptions team the fundraising team and I help by fostering dogs too. Helping animals brings me much joy and happiness into my life.
