As the DCGR has no paid staff we are all volunteers and we welcome help from individuals who can give up a few hours to help at one of our events or in our charity shop in Lockerbie. At this time we are looking for help in the following areas:
- Shop volunteers to help us run this very popular charity shop in Lockerbie. Volunteers normally work a 4 hour shift either in the morning or afternoon shift once or twice a week. The work involves sorting donated stock, display and handling customers. The shop team are really great and all get on well together with a great can-do attitude. For more information and a chat contact the charity shop direct on: 01576 202694
- Photographer – We are on the lookout for a volunteer photographer to take pictures of the dogs for our website. Based in Gretna your role will be to take a head and body photo of each dog and possibly some video footage as well. For more information and an informal chat please phone 01461 40066.
- Meet a Greyhound events: At this time we are very short of volunteers to help at our “Meet the Greyhound” days and fundraising events. These events normally take place at a busy location so that the public get a chance to meet and talk about our dogs. For this role you need to be confident and able to speak to the public about the dog you are looking after. For more information please telephone Colin on 0146140066
As we do now have our own kennels and our dogs are kept at various boarding kennels we do not walk dogs, but there is always lots of ways you can help and even help us re-home our lovely Greyhounds.
We look forward to hearing from you
