Volunteering

There are many ways of volunteering for the RSPCA Bromley & District Branch. We depend on our volunteers to continue our work effectively for animal welfare in our area. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the Branch then please contact the Branch Volunteer Coordinator, via email: rspca.bromley.volunteers@gmail.com

Fundraising Volunteers

We carry out collections outside various stores and often have a stall at local events within our Branch area.  We are always looking for new ideas and for volunteers to help fundraise for the Branch.

Can you help us? We need volunteers to;

  • Assist with collections
  • Place collection boxes
  • Help at events during the year
  • Organise your own event
  • Donate raffles and event auction items

If so, please contact the Branch Volunteer Coordinator, via email: rspca.bromley.volunteers@gmail.com

Home Visitors

We provide home visits for the RSPCA Bromley & District Branch, other RSPCA Branches and the main RSPCA’s Animal Centres.

As a home visitor you would visit prospective animal adopters in their homes and assess suitability.  Ideally a Home Visitor would have a calm, confident manner.  Being a natural ‘people person’ and knowledge of caring for animals would be a great advantage. We are always looking for volunteers to join our team, please contact the volunteer Branch Volunteer Coordinator, via email: rspca.bromley.volunteers@gmail.com.

As a Home Visitor, it will be arranged for you to attend a home visitors course.

Fostering

For some animal lovers, long term commitment isn’t always possible, however, fostering (taking care of an animal before it is adopted) may be a way forward for you.  We are always looking for foster homes for cats, kittens, rabbits and other small furry animals.  Please let us know of any previous experience you have of caring for animals. Adequate and secure space for the animals is essential, as is lots of love and dedication.  Fostering will not involve any personal expense, unless of course you decide to lavish your lodger with toys and treats!
