How you can help

Borders Animal Welfare Association needs your help.

You can help the animals by volunteering either some of your time, fostering, sponsoring an animal we are unable to find a home for, becoming a  member, adopting one of the animals or leaving the animals money in your will.

We exist purely due to the generosity of the Borders public. This allows us to run the centre, employ Animal Care Assistants, provide food, shelter and veterinary care.

With your time and support we are able to make the money go further and therefore care for more animals. There are many ways you can be useful to the animals so whatever time or skills you have we can use them.


There are many opportunities to help us. Click on the list in the menu for details of the main areas we would appreciate help.
