Volunteering for PDWRA

Would you like to register online as a PDWRA Volunteer?

Here are 3 ways in which you can help our charity.

If you would like to help, please complete the online application via the link below. Please only complete the questions applicable to the role(s) you would like to help with.

  • Home checking

Home checking for PDWRA involves visiting an adoptive or foster applicant in your near locality.

The purpose of a home check is to try and gather as much information as possible about the applicant, their home, lifestyle and any other resident pets.

You will be sent an ID Lanyard to wear on your visit.

You will be emailed the applicant’s details, and a copy of our home check form to guide you on your visit. This will need to be completed in full and returned to your Area Rehoming Co-ordinator.

The decision to pass or fail a home check will be made by the Area Rehoming Co-ordinator.

  • Transporting a pug

Transporting involves the collection/delivery and transportation of a PDWRA pug.

This can work in a variety of ways, and may require you to collect a surrendered pug from an owner, or deliver a pug to an adopter.

Occasionally it may involve being part of a transport chain where you collect and hand the pug to another PDWRA volunteer.

It is likely that you will be required to oversee the completion of paperwork, and be asked to send this to your Area Rehoming Co-ordinator.

You will be sent an ID Lanyard to wear.

You can specify the sort of distance you would be willing to travel. Fuel costs can be reimbursed by the charity.

  • Fundraising

Fundraising for PDWRA involves raising much needed funds for the pugs in our care. PDWRA is a registered charity and all funds are used to pay for any veterinary care the pugs need, along with associated costs.

You could help by offering to assist at a large national event (such as Crufts or Discover Dogs) or at a local event near you; by arranging your own event, such as holding a cake sale or coffee morning; or even by running a sponsored marathon!

There are many ways to fundraise, and our PDWRA fundraising team is here to offer support.
