How to give Practical Help


At Barkinside we always need volunteers to look after the dogs, humans and other animals. The sanctuary is always in need of enthusiastic helpers, in the yard and in the dog pens or admin on the facebook page, webpage, design, marketing and promotions. We also need people to raise money on our behalf by hosting quizzes and other fund raising events.

volunteerHaving willing volunteers is a big part of running our busy sanctuary and we extend the invitation to anyone in Europe who is willing to help for a couple of weeks. All we ask is you provide your own travel costs and accommodation will be supplied. Just send an email to me, Jacquie at with your details and any relevant information.


We would also like to extend our thanks to all our volunteers past and present and everyone who has made life for our dogs a great deal easier. Best wishes to you all, Jacquie x

Take our Dogs for a Walk

Most Wednesdays, volunteers arrive at Barkinside to take one of the rescued dogs for a walk. If you live in the area could you offer an hour a week to walk a dog? It gives them so much pleasure and its fun too!
