Why volunteer with CDPA?

We are a completely volunteer run charity and we are extremely proud of our inclusive and supportive volunteer programme.

In 2022, CDPA were one of the first volunteer organisations in Ireland to be awarded the Volunteer Friendly Award!! This award recognises that we support, recognise and appreciate our incredible volunteers throughout their time with us through training, guidance and advice.

CDPA are so grateful to the volunteers who have generously dedicated their time and skills to helping animals in our care and we are always looking for more volunteers to join our team!
