Volunteering is a rewarding experience and UHARS is a place where many of our volunteers gather to help out and unwind from busy lives. Being in a place where the animals want nothing but food, water and people to be kind to them, has a very calming effect on our volunteers.


Due to the nature of the work and because we are often short of volunteers, all volunteers need to be able to work competently on their own.


Please call into UHARS and complete a Volunteer Application. Or you can complete an application online.

Once we have your application and it has been approved we can add you to our wonderful team.


Please send your completed application to:
