Thank you for choosing to volunteer with Ren’s Rescue and help make a difference to the lives of so many animals in need. There are no paid staff at this sanctuary and we are run 100% by volunteers like you. Even this fabulously professional looking website is run by a volunteer. There are a variety of ways you can help here. Just a few examples include: General animal care, building and maintenance, dog walking, cat cuddling, fundraising, photography, videography, animal training, grooming, rescuing and much more.
There are countless ways to help as a volunteer but there are also so many personal benefits to volunteering. Volunteering can help build a strong feeling of community and combat loneliness. A shared goal and a shared love of animals can really build bonds between volunteers. Connecting with others and feelings of accomplishment are said to be extremely good for emotional wellbeing. Some of our volunteers came to work for Ren’s, not because we needed them, but because they needed the routine and the feeling self-worth that comes with working here. Even the simple act of petting an animal can release chemicals in the brain that can help keep the blues at bay. Volunteering can not only help you utilise your best skills, but also challenge you to develop brand new skills too. On top of all that volunteering looks great on a CV.
