At Boxer Welfare Scotland, our volunteers are the backbone of the charity; without them we simply wouldn’t be able to do the work we what we do!! Alongside our trustees and committee members, our volunteers help in every aspect of Boxer Welfare Scotland’s day to day work from answering phones and dealing with enquiries to fostering dogs and carrying out home checks to arranging fundraising events. Our volunteers are spread across the whole of Scotland and some even further afield!!
What Could i Do as A Volunteer
Our volunteers carry out home checks for all potential adopters. These are friendly visits to have a chat about the adoption process and see the surroundings in which our BWS dogs will be living.
This is where our volunteers meet with the people who can no longer care for their boxer to take them into our care. This is a difficult time for everyone involved and the owners are often heartbroken at what they have to do. Our volunteers try to make this as painless as possible and are very understanding.
