Volunteers are the backbone of this charity.

RSPCA York, Harrogate and District Branch cannot function without the dedicated help of our volunteers who support our branch in a variety of ways and we are eternally grateful for all the support we are given.

If you are interested in volunteering, you’ll find our current volunteer vacancies below, along with details of how to join our prospective volunteer register.

Dog Walking Volunteers:-

We are very sorry but we currently have no vacancies for casual dog walkers. 


Events Assistants

As a locally based individually registered charity we have to raise all our own funds to run the Branch. Throughout the year we run a variety of events which help raise funds for the Animal Home, some examples are as follows:

These events are run in a variety of areas in our District such as York, Harrogate, Selby, Ripon and Wetherby.
