Did you know that volunteering has been known to improve the volunteers’ wellbeing too? 

It is human nature to feel good for volunteering, especially when you’re involved with something you are truly passionate about – such as animals and welfare. 

We couldn’t possibly express our gratitude towards our very dedicated, generous team of volunteers in just a few words so instead we’d like to celebrate a few people who always go the extra mile.
