Join our Community Fundraising Programme

In order to continue to grow and have more of an impact worldwide for the animals who need us, we have created a new Community Fundraising Programme and are now looking for enthusiastic animal lovers to join our team and help us build strong fundraising communities throughout the UK. Our aim is to create a supportive, fun community of people from all walks of life joined together for the same cause; animal welfare.

We simply wouldn’t be able to help all of the dogs and cats who rely on our lifeline without our dedicated team of volunteers. If you don’t feel there is a good fit for you below, we’d still love to hear from you – please email our Community & Events Manager Rachel at rachel.cooper@iapwa.org for an informal chat.

“I have always found animal cruelty unbearable to think about. Therefore, being able to fundraise to help end their suffering brings me a tiny bit of peace."

"IAPWA is something a bit different for me. I love how many animals they help – it’s not just dogs and cats; they’ve even helped elephants, rhinos and much more, and that’s why I got involved.’
