Volunteering

alt

Epsom Canine Rescue have no paid staff and rely solely on volunteers to help care for our dogs, and raise funds for the work that we do.  There are various ways that you can help:

  • Walking the Kennel Dogs
     
  • - The kennels we use are based near Horley in Surrey, and you will need your own transport to get there as there is no public transport nearby.
  • - We are looking for more mid-week walkers (as weekends are currently covered), and as  these are private boarding kennels, dogs can only be walked between approximately 10.30  - 4pm.
  • - Like many mixed breed rescues,  we have a lot of terriers and bullbreeds/staffies  in our care - so walkers will need to be confident  & capable of  handling a variety of breeds of dogs; including those of a lively and more boisterous nature.
  • - All walkers will need to undergo an induction first , so we ask for a minimum commitment of fortnightly  walking.
  • - Unfortunately you will not be able to bring your own dog to walk with you , or children.
  • - Walkers will need to be at  least 21 years of age.
  • - If you are Interested in walking our dogs, please complete our Volunteer Application HERE
  •  
  •  
  • Volunteering at Events & Fetes
  •  
  • - We organise/attend a number of events throughout the year including street collections, dog shows and fetes.
  • - Despite our name, most events & fetes that we attend are within a 10 mile radius of Reigate. 
  • - If you are interested in helping out either  tin rattling, setting up or baking cakes , please take a look at our Diary of Events Page and also please join our lively Facebook Group where appeals for help will be posted in the run-up to events. 
  • - Please join HERE

Fostering

alt

We desperately need more foster homes,  and will always look to match a suitable dog with you. We provide any equipment and food needed, and full back-up & support. Plus veterinary fees are paid.

We do not look for weekend or short-term foster placements, as this is very disruptive for our dogs.

If you are interested in fostering dogs, please complete our re-homing application HERE stating 'Fostering' in place of the dogs name.

Recycling Old Mobile Phones

alt

If you've just upgraded your handset, why not donate your old one to a worthy cause & at the same time help to save the environment.

It doesn't matter how old your old phone is, or if it works or not. All phones can be recycled, so encourage friends, relatives and colleagues to do the same.

We will recycle your old handset on your behalf, and we will receive a small amount of money by doing so which we will use towards veterinary and kenneling fees for our rescue dogs.

Please ensure you remove your SIM card from any phones you send, and please send only the phone, not the chargers. Any SIM cards received will be destroyed.

To donate your old phone, please contact us here.
