Carla Lane Animals in Need


3 Spurriers Lane, Melling, Liverpool, L31 1BA.  Tel: 0151 549 0959



If you would like to offer your time as a regular volunteer, please email us at Let us know what you’d like to do, and what sort of prior experience you have with animals. Note that for health and safety reasons, we cannot accept any volunteers under the age of 16. Most of the on-site tasks we need help with will focus on cleaning/tidying or hard physical work, so do bear this in mind.

If you’d like to bring a team down as part of a corporate charity day, we can accommodate this too.

As well as the rescue site, we also need people to help with fundraising – for example, doing odd jobs at our Fun Dog Shows, or shaking a donation bucket at Pets at Home during our events there. If you enjoy chatting to like-minded animal lovers, this might be the role for you. Fundraisers are vital to keep us afloat! 

Besides this, we are always looking for good foster homes able to care for cats and kittens (we don’t normally use foster home for our dogs, due to the special training regimes some of them need).
