To report cruelty, injured strays or wildlife

Become a home visitor

Do you have a couple of hours to spare each month in the evening or perhaps even during the day?
Would you like to volunteer to assist local animals in finding their forever home?
Then look no further, you could become a home visitor!

The role of a home visitor is an extremely important role here at RSPCA Lincolnshire Mid and Lincoln, and we pride ourselves in ensuring our animals find the perfect homes to go to!


Home Visitor

“The reason why I became a home visitor was to be part of the process that helps to re-home animals  ( some but not all of these animals have not had the best start in life and they all deserve safe, loving, forever-homes). The home visit is the last link in the chain of the adoption process and as such it is vital to get it right. Most home visits go well but occasionally difficult decisions have to be made. The branch administrator and the trustees have always provided me with excellent support for these where needed. The end result is very rewarding and I gain immense satisfaction from seeing the pictures of an animal that has settled into its new home where it is safe and cared for.

I am certain that anyone with a love of companion animals and some background knowledge, who takes up this role, will not be disappointed.”

Application process

Please download and complete a general volunteer application form, and send your completed form to our office at At this point, our office will request your two references, and consider your application to become a home visitor. You will also need to arrange to provide a passport sized photograph for your ID badge – fancy!

Once your references have come back, our office will contact you to invite you to undertake a short online training course on how to be a home visitor and enrol you onto the two short courses on the Hive e-Learning platform. A confirmation email will then be sent to you with your username and a temporary password. Once you have completed the courses, you will be invited to meet our branch administrator to discuss branch specific aspects of the position and to go through any paperwork. You will then be invited to attend a home visit with an experienced home visitor so that you can experience a live visit being undertaken before going independent!
