RSPCA is looking for volunteers in Leicester – here’s what’s on offer
A rescue center for cats, dogs and other pets in Leicester is asking people for help as he recovers from the pandemic.
Woodside Animal Center has once again opened its doors to the public, with many animals waiting to be reunited with their families forever.
The center is looking for caring and kind people to spend time with the animals – many of whom are traumatized and frightened by humans – on a voluntary basis.

Amanda Lovett, director of the center, said: âSometimes we get to a point where the cattery is packed and we have a lot of dogs in care,
âSometimes we have a hard time keeping up with the work and spending as much time as we would like with these traumatized and lonely animals. “
Jobs such as feeding and playing with animals and walking dogs are offered.
Ms Lovett said: âWe are looking for people who care about animals and would like to see these cared for cats and dogs have a good time while waiting for their forever homes.
âThey are volunteers who help us give these animals the love and attention they need.
However, if getting your hands dirty isn’t your thing, the association encourages people to donate or get involved in sponsored events, or even volunteer at one of its charity shops.
