It's simple, local animals need local people like you! There are so many ways you can help us and there are benefits for you too!

The animals this Branch cares for live right here in Nottingham. We need people like you to volunteer to help them in a variety of ways. From two hours once a month to a couple of days a week we can always make good use of you and your skills. Just think of a simple thing to help such as selling raffle tickets, collecting donations or manning a store collection. It may only be a few hours of your time but you will make such a difference!

If you are looking for information on work experience placements, apprenticeships or internships see our Careers page.

As we do not have any animals on premises, we are unable to offer work experience, voluntary placements or training schemes involving animal care.


Volunteers are CRUCIAL in helping keep Branch going and the work they do is vital. You too could be part of the team by

  • Helping in our Charity Shops (located in Hyson Green and Eastwood). Your time will be greatly appreciated and you'll get to meet new people as well as helping animals.
  • Do a RSPCA Trawler bag drop locally or take some to work/social group for neighbours, friends and colleagues to fill up with donations, we can collect too.
  • Sell Raffle tickets. By selling just a couple of books you will have fed a cat or dog for a day.
  • Collect prizes for regular raffles/tombolas. Unwanted gifts are ideal!
  • PLEASE NOTE: We have no animals on premises, therefore we cannot offer 'hands on' animal work placements, work experience or DoE volunteering.

    Volunteer Application Form


    You can volunteer at events in a variety of ways. By baking, selling raffle tickets before the event, promoting via social media, putting up posters or by collecting at specific events. This means you can do your bit without having to commit a lot of time.


    Whether it's jumping from a plane, running 10K or volunteering your time, YOU can help us by fundraising in a multitude of ways

  • A Bingo/Casino night - Charity poker night or shouting a full house participants will be helping local animals.
  • Skills/Silent Auction - Any auction, be it of skills people have or of items donated.
  • Quiz night - a great fun event, can even be TV quiz themed
  • Pub Amenities evening - get people to donate whilst playing darts/pool/snooker.
  • Sponsored Events - A stalwart of fundraising and you can have a sponsored 'anything'. 'Go without sponsorship' for those that's challenge would be spend a day without texting or chocolate or swearing! Or how about spending a night in a local haunted house/pub. We want you to raise funds with the emphasis on FUN so put your thinking cap on and see what you can come up with.
  • We will provide you with posters and promotional material so people know exactly where their donation is going.

    Corporate Sponsors

    Local charities sometimes miss out on company sponsorship as large businesses usually chose National Organistaions as there designated aid beneficary. So, if you are local Nottingham business and would like to show support for animals living in the city then we would love to hear from you.


    We couldn't function without our volunteers and we are always on the look out for more animal lovers who want to help. Not only will you have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping local animals, but you will get to meet new, like minded people, have fun and volunteering your time will look good on your CV! We're a friendly bunch here at Nottingham and Notts so please get in touch, your time will make a difference.
