Support Dogs is a small charity and we rely heavily on the amazing support of our volunteers to make our life changing work possible.

Throughout the training process all our dogs and pups stay overnight in the loving home of volunteer. We are always on the look out for more volunteers to help with this.

Whether you can help look after a young puppy full time or whether you work all day and so can only care for an older dog in training during evenings and weekends, there is volunteer role for you. Read on to find our more about different roles and how to register your interests.
