About the Charity

Borders Pet Rescue is a small registered Scottish charity offering animal rescue, re-homing and the promotion of responsible pet ownership through education and training across the Scottish Borders and adjoining areas. Established in 1988, the Charity’s Rescue Centre is at Craigsford in Earlston. Each year more than 200 animals are re-homed.

The charity relies entirely on fundraising, donations and significant funds generated by four Borders Pet Rescue Charity Shops located in Galashiels, Kelso, Duns and Hawick.

Like all animal charities, BPR relies on the generosity of the animal loving public to support the work and could not survive without the dedication of the many friends and volunteers.

About the Vacancy

Borders Pet Rescue is currently seeking to recruit two enthusiastic and energetic supporters to join our Board of Trustees. We have ambitious plans, including the building of a new kennel facility, and need capable Trustees to help us deliver these plans whilst fully maintaining our existing services. In particular we are seeking to recruit individuals with experience of estate and facilities management and/or IT management. The Trustees have ultimate responsibility for the operation and development of the charity, including animal welfare, compliance with charity legislation, fundraising, public relations and financial control.

 

       Principal duties include:

  • To attend monthly Board meetings held in Earlston, usually on a Monday evening, and to have regular access to email for exchange of documents and information between meetings.
  • Board members are expected to participate actively in the charities activities and are asked to attend and support the organisation’s volunteer and fundraising events.

Time commitment: Approximately 2 days per month, including monthly Trustee meetings (2-3 hours per meeting)
 
Please note that this is a voluntary role, although reasonable expenses may be paid.

How to apply: Send details of your relevant experience and a personal profile to:  chair@borderspetrescue.org

Turtle Tank Upgrade!

We have some Yellow Belly Sliders who came into our care as their owner was moving and didn’t have space for them in their new home. Under EU laws we are unable to rehome them and so we instead raised money though a crowdfunder appeal and bought them a nice large tank where they can spend their lives with us. Below you can see their original tank, and their new tank.

Many thanks to everyone who helped fund this new home for them!
