Become a Trustee

As a Trustee you are responsible, along
with the other Trustees, for ensuring
that all monies are properly recorded
and accounted for as well as ensure
that Animal Samaritans meets all its
legal requirements


We are currently hoping to enhance the experience and knowledge of our Board of Trustees by appointing new members with the following backgrounds and/or experience:

. animal (veterinary) care, including working or volunteering at an animal shelter;

· accounting and finance – from experience in a similar role with a charity to being a qualified accountant;

· social media – from website content to our social media presence, in this digital age, a professional with experience in these areas would be a great addition to the team;

· legal professional with knowledge of charity law.

· Keen and enthusiastic individuals who would like to get involved with an established animal re-homing charity.

Meetings are held in person (when Government restrictions allow) as well as using Skye or Teams.

Get Involved

Animal Samaritans relies on the generosity of its supporters and volunteers. Donations in various forms help to cover:

· Veterinary fees for rescued animals as well as helping pet owners with the cost of medical expenses for their much-loved cats, dogs, rabbits and other small animals.

· The cost of inoculations and neutering, as well as microchipping if appropriate. 

As well as money, an invaluable supply of pet food is donated at Morrison’s supermarkets in various locations. 

These donations help us to continue our vital role within the communities in South East London and the South East of England. 

If you wish to donate funds, please contact us and we will give you details of how to donate.

Thank you but we cannot accept any towels and bedding donations

Help us with Food Donations

We have pet food donation collection bins at   
Morrison's Erith
Morrison's Sidcup
Morrison's Welling 

Any pet food donations are very welcome and we appreciate any help you can offer.


Leave a lasting Legacy

By including a gift to Animal Samaritans in your Will, you can make sure we’ll always be there to care for dogs, cats and small animals – whenever and wherever they need us.

Will making & Codicils


Making a Will, or updating your existing Will, are two ways you can ensure that your money benefits the people or causes that you really care about. 

To find out what you need to know visit the Law Society website.

Already made a Will?

Many people make a Will and assume that's all they need to do. However, circumstances can change over the years and so it is always advisable to take a fresh look at your Will every few years to ensure it meets your current needs.

Changing your Will

If you have already made your Will and decide that you would like to add a gift to Animal Samaritans, a codicil is a good, inexpensive way to do so. Adding a codicil to your Will enables you to leave a donation to Animal Samaritans whilst ensuring that the other provisions remain untouched and you won't have to pay for your Will to be completely rewritten.

Again, you should consult a Solicitor.


We do not have a shelter or animal sanctuary and therefore do not need help to look after pets in our care.

However, from time to time our volunteer fosterers do welcome assistance to look after the pets they are looking after whilst we find them new homes.

You must be over 16 to volunteer with Animal Samaritans.
