  • VO73465
  • Home-based volunteering


Description

Are you passionate about animal welfare? Why not join a growing team of Home Visitors who play a vital role in supporting owners and pets in your local area who are facing an emergency situation.

Home Visitors play an essential role in delivery of their service by visiting potential volunteer foster carers to assess their house, home situation and the fosterer.

Volunteers will be contacted by PFSS when there is a need for a home visit in your area and as part of this - your role will include contacting the potential fosterer and arrange a time for a home visit to take place; carry out the home visit following guidelines provided by PFSS; complete the home visit report and return a copy to the Home Visit Coordinator.

Organisation aims and objectives

PFSS provides a unique service, supporting pet owners who are facing ill health, temporary homelessness or domestic abuse. Our volunteer foster carers give a pet a temporary “home from home”, taking responsibility for their care, feeding and exercise, freeing the owner from worry at a difficult time
