Every volunteer dedicates their personal time and energy to our cause in a variety of roles. We really do appreciate the commitment that is given. At Kilmarnock's Horse Rescue and Rehoming centre in Crawley there are so many ways in which volunteers may help us, and without them, we would struggle to meet the needs of the charity.
We need volunteers who are able to provide regular help to assist us with tasks such as maintenance (e.g. painting and renovating our stables, fixing broken yard tools, general DIY, and fence mending), yard duties (such as mucking out, grooming, helping out on farrier or vet days by handling the horses, and filling hay nets), administration duties, and assisting at our events.
There are lots of benefits to becoming a Kilmarnock Horse Rescue volunteer.
You will learn more about horses, meet new people, and make new friends, develop or gain new skills to build your CV or help you gain confidence and self-esteem. You will also become part of a valued team allowing you to give something back to an animal you love and respect.
Being a volunteer can be a very rewarding experience.
If you feel you could help us by giving some of your time, and contributing to the welfare of our horses, ponies and donkeys in our care please contact us. Please apply on line if you would like to be considered for one of our current voluntary vacancies.
Please see our current voluntary vacancies below.
If you would like to be considered for one of these opportunities please complete the online application form. Please note that for the YARD ASSISTANT vacancy, we really do need someone who can fully commit to the role. In winter, our equines are stabled and the workload is heavy so we will be relying on your help.
