Support our work over the Coronation

Whilst Battersea currently does not offer one-day volunteering opportunities, if you would like to get involved and support our work over the Coronation and beyond, we have lots of volunteering opportunities available for you to get involved in all aspects of our work.

Fundraise your way

If you would like to fundraise for Battersea during The Big Help Out on Monday 8 May, consider our guide to fundraising your own way. However you choose to raise money, every penny will make a difference to the lives of dogs and cats everywhere.

Volunteer at Battersea

Volunteering at Battersea is a truly rewarding experience. You’ll get the opportunity to meet new people (along with lots of animals) and gain a range of transferable skills.

We are always looking for volunteers to help the dogs and cats in our care and further the work we do. To be the first to know about our latest volunteering opportunities, sign up and receive information straight to your email inbox.

Volunteer at Muddy Dog Challenge

Help us put on our popular Muddy Dog Challenge events. We have lots of different volunteer roles available on the day, so whichever one you do, you’re guaranteed to make lots of new friends (both two and four legged), get a bit muddy and have lots of fun!


We’re always on the lookout for new foster carers! Fostering is a great way to improve the lives of deserving dogs and cats, whilst enriching yours with the love of an animal. We’ll provide you with everything you need to care for your foster animal, including lots of training and support from our dedicated team.
