Every year, the first week in June is Volunteers Week. Here at Hope Rescue, we are so lucky to have an incredible team of volunteers who are the beating heart of our rescue. Without them, quite simply, we could not do what we do. Each and every one of them helps us to improve the lives of the dogs that come into our care, to give them Hope.

The world in which they volunteer has changed dramatically over the past few weeks, yet they continue to amaze us with their dedication and creativity, so this year our Volunteers Week theme was “You make the world of difference”.

Over the past week, and to mark Volunteers Week 2020, some of the members of #TeamHope have thanked our amazing volunteers and told you how they make a world of difference to the Hope dogs.

The words “thank you” just aren’t enough to express what they mean to us and how grateful we are for everything they do. Whether it’s fundraising or dog walking, fostering or home-checking, helping at our charity shop or at our rescue centre, donating their professional services or being a trustee, we thank them all.

So a huge “Hope Thank You” and shout out to all our amazing, dedicated, fun-loving and hard-working volunteers, many of whom you can see in this photo!
