Senior Staffy Club is run entirely by the power of volunteers – so when we say volunteers are vital to keep the wheels turning, and to keep helping Senior Staffies in need, we really mean it!
We are always looking for volunteers, especially in the role listed below…
Transport is regularly required to move dogs to foster homes and to the kennels we use in the Worcester and Stoke areas. Additionally, we need to move our Senior Staffies from kennels to the vets and back – although this is only required at the Worcester kennels.
If you are a driver and happy to volunteer for this important role, please complete our online Volunteer Form below.
To help transport our dogs to our kennels, to foster homes or to the vets.
Variable dependent on as and when transport is needed and on distance you are willing to travel.
Support and guidance from Transport Co-ordinator Committee member. Fuel costs can be covered if required.
To help transport dogs from…
Dog pounds or home hand-ins to kennels.
Kennels to vets (Worcester area ONLY).
Kennels to foster carers.
Foster carers to vets (occasionally).
If transporting to vets, to be present during any veterinary examination and make a note of required treatment and collect the necessary medicines.
Transport runs can cover many miles but you will not be expected to cover the whole distance, just parts of the run and meet up with other transporters en route to transfer the dog to the next transporter’s vehicle.
Must have a vehicle, driving licence and appropriate insurance.
Must possess a means of securing the dog during transport which must be either a dog grill in the car or a crate – a car harness can only be used if there is another adult travelling with you, to sit alongside the dog in case they get distressed and try to climb out of harness.
Experience with handling dogs – some lifting is required.
Ability to follow correct procedures as instructed to ensure your own safety and that of the dogs.
There are many ways in which you can help us to run the Senior Staffy Club and volunteers are always welcome, subject to some criteria related to specific areas of volunteering. There are almost certainly roles where you can help us.
If you are interested in volunteering, please read through our form below and, having decided where your talents lie, please complete the form and submit it.
We will then get in touch with you. Thank you.
