Volunteer

Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary is a voluntary organisation that relies on the support and dedication of committed animal lovers. You can volunteer to help with day to day care of the animals on the yard, or help with regular fundraising events such as bag packing in local supermarkets.

If you would like to become a volunteer please follow the instructions below attached to the individual roles and areas for volunteering.

You can email us at volunteer@crosskennanlane.org.uk if you think there’s any way you can help.


Please note there may be delays in getting new volunteers trained on site as we can only accept so many at at time for everyone's safety.

Transport Volunteers

Please email volunteer@crosskennanlane.org.uk and specify what area you would like to assist

Transport plays a huge part in the welfare of our animals both new and current. With your help, the animals are one step closer to retrieving the necessary care that is only possible with use of a vehicle - attending a vet, delivering life saving medication, aiding in the pick-ups of newly reported strays or abandoned pets.



Something you take for granted every day, could actually be the life-altering need for another. In this case, our many dependent animals in care.

Role includes some of the following responsibilities:

For vet runs

To collect animals.

To collect medicine, food or donations.


Sign up and we will add you to the volunteer group that suits you. Then when we need help you'll get a notification and if you are free and able to help, you can raise your hand!



No set hours or commitment - help when and where you can!

Maintenance Volunteers

Please email volunteer@crosskennanlane.org.uk and specify you would like to assist with the maintenance.

With over 100 animals on site annually on average, the sanctuary gets a lot of wear and tear.
This is why we need maintenance volunteers who are willing to come in and undertake DIY and associated tasks, such as sweeping the yard, strimming weeds, power washing, and cleaning the windows, doing runs to the dump etc.

This role includes some of the following responsibilities:

Weeding / gardening

Hedge trimming

Strimming

Power washing

Repairs

and more...

Not all will appeal to everyone - or be suitable for everyone but if you think you can help out in a physical capacity it will be very welcome!
