Animal welfare charity Blue Cross is calling for qualified or retired veterinary nurses to donate their spare time and volunteer to help needy pets at London-based events.
Vet nurses are needed to carry out health checks, give advice and microchip pets at a number of events, while promoting animal welfare and the charity’s work.
Full training will be provided for this flexible volunteering role, which is an opportunity to increase knowledge and understanding of welfare.
The London animal hospitals are based in Victoria, Merton and Hammersmith. Blue Cross veterinary services help pets whose owners are on certain means tested benefits and live in animal hospital catchment areas.
Blue Cross also operates an outreach service to clients with animal ambulances and community vet nurses who visit clients in their home if they are unable to travel to the hospital. Its mobile clinic visits Southwark, Hackney, Islington and Walthamstow weekly to offer eligible clients’ pets preventative healthcare, check-ups and basic treatment.
