I started volunteering at Animal Rescue Cumbria in January 2014 with my partner Jason. We wanted a change from the stress of everyday life, and to feel like we were giving something back to our local community. We both have a love of animals so it seemed the perfect choice!
I was lucky enough to join the staff team in April 2015; there are hard days and fantastic days, tears shed but also lots of happy times filled with love and laughs. I feel honoured to be part of such a passionate team, and to be involved in so many animals’ progress while they wait for their forever homes. My absolute favourite part is receiving the updates of happy ex-residents from their new families.
