Volunteers needed to transport rescue animals on behalf of UK animal rescues

Animal rescues use volunteer transporters to help move animals to and from their care. Transporters are a huge help for rescues because many small independent rescues often do not have the resources to pay for all the fuel and vehicle maintenance required in moving dozens or even hundreds of animals each year, and volunteer transporters enable them to help many more animals than they could otherwise.

Transporting rescue animals is a fun and easy way to help rescues. Just a couple of hours every now and then is all it takes to make a big difference, although many transport volunteers find it so enjoyable they end up transporting on a regular basis.

If you have a vehicle, a driving license and a little time to spare, you can sign up as a volunteer transporter and we’ll contact you whenever a transport run is being organised in your area.

Often, for particularly long journeys, we split the transport run in to multiple sections to make a transport chain. Thousands of animals have been successfully transported in this way by our volunteer transporters.

  2. Hello there

    I was wondering if you can help me at all?

    I recently took on a dog who was going to be dumped, and I have kept her at home with me until a kennel space came up for her, as I can unfortunately not keep her permanently.

    Today, a kennel space came up, however it is is Plymouth and I am based in Suffolk! The journey is roughly around 6 hours.

    I was wondering if anybody can help me with transporting Ellie to her new home at the sanctuary? Anything will be helpful.

    The journey will be on Sat 12th April, and she needs to be at the kennels between 1pm & 4pm.

    Thankyou very much in advance!

  4. Hi (again)

    I would also be interested in “transporting” animals volunteering as well as “homechecking”. I look forward to hearing from you.

  5. I wish to apply to take part in voluntary services with VOLUNTEER UK ANIMALS in order to gain more experience on wildlife establishment and development of wildlife protection areas to ensure continual survival of nature.
