The Animal Jobs Direct Volunteer with Animals ebook Guide provides direct links to animal welfare and rescue charities that offer a range of exciting volunteering opportunities - there are a variety of voluntary jobs in the animal care sector. Many animal charities exist on limited funds, and therefore, voluntary workers are much needed and appreciated.

Some charities welcome volunteers who can only spare a few hours on weekends, and other organisations prefer to have volunteers commit to a specific project with a set volunteer job description.
Through volunteering, you will gain many new skills that will benefit you with applying for vacancies or course placements.
