Sheffield Rehoming and Advice Unit


Animal Care - Pet Buddy

 

Are you an animal lover looking for a chance to gain practical experience and skills? Would you love to spend time with animals but are not currently in a position to have a pet yourself?  Your local Blue Cross Rehoming and Advice Unit is looking for enthusiastic and caring people to help us socialise and handle our animals in our “home from home” rooms until they find loving new homes.

What you will be doing:

  • Spending time with our animals in the “home from home” rooms at the unit socialising, stroking, playing with them and getting them used to being handled

  • Monitoring health, welfare and behaviour of the animals

  •  Basic animal care

What we are looking for:

  • Regular commitment and reliability

  • An interest in animal welfare. Experience of owning or caring for pets is an advantage.

  • Ability to work in a team or alone

  • Willingness to learn and follow Blue Cross procedures

 

Benefits to you:

  • You’ll be helping pets to have happy, healthy lives

  • Spend quality time with our animals then watch them go to new homes

  • A chance to spend time with animals without the commitment of pet ownership

  • Stay active and healthy

  • Develop skills and enhance your CV for a career in animal welfare

  • Join a great team of like-minded people

  • Gain practical skills and experience

 

This opportunity is available at our Sheffield Rehoming and Advice Unit
