Volunteering with the RSPCA


As a self funding charity, the Branch relies on the contribution of volunteers, as well as its paid employees, to fulfil a variety of roles within the organisation. We currently need volunteers to help in our charity shops in Longridge and Chorley.


Charity Shops


The charity shops are run by permanent staff with the assistance of volunteers and provide much needed monetary support to the entire branch.


Volunteers may be asked to:



  • Assist customers

  • Stock shelves

  • Arrange window displays

  • Maintain the shop areas to present an attractive environment to entice in customers.


Working with animals can be physically and emotionally demanding, and unfortunately, for this reason, our insurance policy prohibits us from accepting anyone under the age of 18 years as a volunteer at the animal centre.


We are always looking for bright and enthusiastic people, who are committed to helping animals in need, to join our branch as volunteers. If this sounds like you then please get in touch with the centre and ask for an application form. We look forward to working with you in caring for the area’s unwanted and neglected pets. We do try to get in touch with applicants as soon as possible but this can be delayed if there are a large number of applications so please be patient and we will contact you as soon as possible.


For more information about fostering please contact our Foster Co-ordinator Jess on 01772 792553 or email rspcapreston@hotmail.com
