• Volunteer Opportunities

  • Volunteers are the lifeblood of Bedlington Terrier Rescue Foundation - we simply could not operate without our very dedicated team of volunteers.

    We are always on the lookout for volunteers up and down the country to raise much needed funds to help support our work.

    We are also looking for experienced dog owners, happy to train to become foster carers for us.  This is a very important role and you will be a huge part in helping to rehabilitate a dog to help improve their chance of finding a new home. We will provide the training and support you need for this role to make sure you get the most out of volunteering with us. All costs of foster care will be paid by BTRF.

    For more information please download a copy of our FOSTER CARERS' INFORMATION PACK.

    You will have the chance to work with many of the best behaviourists in the country who we appoint to help our dogs that come to us with issues. We are particularly keen to recruit foster carers who have behaviour / training experience. 

    If you would like to be considered as a Foster Carer for us, please download and complete the FOSTER CARER'S FORM and return it to us and our Foster Carers' Liaison Officer, Trish Mahon will make contact with you.

    • How do I become a volunteer?

      We would love to hear from you if you would like to volunteer to help us! You can either contact our Director, Frances Fuller on 01559 384499 / 07398 779515. You can also email Kaye Scott on kaye.scott@bedlingtonrescue.co.uk

    • How much of a commitment will I be required to make?

      Although all the main BTRF Team are volunteers, they are totally committed to their roles on the team. Therefore, yes there is a commitment and all volunteers will be expected to work closely with our Director, Frances Fuller as well as the amazing team!  We are a very friendly group of like-minded people who are passionate about the breed and will encourage any new volunteers to work together as part of that team.

    • How old do I have to be to volunteer?

      All our volunteers must be over 18 years of age.
