Volunteer with us

Join our award-winning volunteer team!

Are you mad about animals? Want to do something to really help  dogs as part of our team? Volunteering with Forever Hounds Trust gives you the opportunity to build new skills, meet new people and gain valuable experience – and it’s fun too!

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Forever Hounds Trust – we simply could not do what we do every day without our amazing volunteers and we are so proud of all that we achieve across the eight regions that we currently operate in.

The dedication and strength of everyone’s commitment to guarantee a better future for the hundreds of greyhounds and lurchers helped every year by Forever Hounds Trust is what helped make us the Animal Charity Team of the Year (2013 as Greyhound Rescue West of England).

In return for your time, we’ll provide the training and support you need for your role to make sure you get the most out of volunteering with us.

A massive pointy-nosed thank you in advance!


From home visits to community events, dog walking to PR, we have a range of great volunteer roles that you can get involved in- just click on the links below to view the role profiles and get in touch if you want to join the team in your area and make a difference.
