Rehoming Team Volunteer – CLOSED

Now closed – No more applications please :)

The Oldies Club Rehoming team urgently needs more help. We are looking for someone who can cover alternate weekends answering e-mail messages and taking telephone calls, both from people who are looking for rescue places for their dogs and from potential adopters.

The telephone calls can be switched to a Voicemail service and calls returned when convenient, so you don’t have to stay in or be tied to the phones the whole time, but some days do get very busy and Rehoming can easily take up a large part of the day.

There is a fair bit of computer work/admin involved in recording calls and updating spreadsheets and other documents, so basic computer literacy and tolerance of doing the boring bits is important.

As part of a team you will be given lots of support and guidance about the way we work and how to respond to particular calls or messages, and we make many of our decisions on a team basis.

Rehoming can be emotional, infuriating and draining – but also immensely satisfying when you are able to help a dog in desperate need into a safe foster home, or see a dog go from a foster home to a perfect forever home.

If you are interested in an informal chat about it in the first instance, please email

*The closing date for expressing an interest in this voluntary position is Friday 10th January 2014*
