Almost Home Animal Rescue NI

Join our team

Join us as a volunteer and help make a difference in the lives of dogs, cats, and rabbits in need.

As a volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to work directly with our furry friends and make a real impact on their lives.

Whether it’s helping out at adoption events, socializing with the animals, or assisting with daily care, there’s a role for everyone.

We welcome volunteers aged 18 and over to join our team and help us achieve our mission of improving animal welfare in our community.

Sign up today and start making a difference for the animals in our care!

We need your help

Dog walkers

You could help us by taking our dogs for their daily walks.  This is a great way to get some exercise for yourself at the same time!


If you have a full driving license maybe you could help us transport animals to and from our centre.  

Fundraising team

Our fabulous fundraising team help us keep the lights on at Almost Home!  They organise fun events throughout the year that provide the much needed funds to let us continue our work.  You could help organise a local pub quiz, or a coffee morning, or even help co-ordinate collection boxes in shops in your area.

Heather House carers

Heather House is our retirement home for older dogs. The dogs in Heather House are sponsored dogs that live a comfortable life, but who are not up for rehoming.  Through no fault of their own they have been abandoned, but they are safe here at Almost Home.

Cat carers

Our Cat and Kitten volunteers help us with daily cleaning, medication and rehoming of our cats.

Puppy unit

Our puppy unit volunteers work hard to keep our pups kennels clean.  The volunteers take care of everything the pups need- from feeding to medicating and spending time socialising with the puppies.
