DSPCA Corporate Volunteer Programme And Team Building Days
We are committed to working with our corporate partners and continue to form strong relationships with organisations and companies who support our mission and values.
The DSPCA works with many companies across different sectors who take part in our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) team building and volunteer days. They take place every week at our site, located in the Dublin mountains. The DSPCA is a popular choice for companies as it allows staff to give back to the community by doing something meaningful and what is personally of value to them.
Staff get to work hands-on with the animals, be outdoors and active in the fresh air. It is a hugely rewarding experience and increases staff morale and well being. If you are considering choosing the DSPCA for your corporate day, please note that due to the popularity, dates are booked 60-90 days in advance. There are two options to choose from;
OPTION 1: Volunteering in our rescue centre
Your team will work directly with our dogs and cats in the rehabilitation and adoption areas. This involves taking the dogs on our nature and perimeter walk, giving them quality time away from their daily routine and ensuring they get lots of cuddles and TLC! For the cat lovers, you will play and socialise with the kittens and cats in our care, a more calm experience!

OPTION 2: Onsite meeting & team building day
Some of our corporate teams have chosen this option for sales meetings, board meetings, away days and CSR planning days. This option is aimed at departments or teams within organisations, who wish to hold an off-site meeting and incorporate some team building into the day. The team building element is focused around engaging and socialising with our shelter animals. Your team will assist the shelter by walking our dogs around our nature perimeter walk and our wetland pathways. For any horse lovers you will have the option of working with our equine specialist helping out in the stable yard. Cat lovers can help out in our cattery helping staff to look after the many cats and kittens in our care. Option of a tailored project, grounds-work, gardening, painting, facilities.
