Volunteer to help animals in Sussex
When you think of animal charities at work in our local communities, there's a tendancy to think of the big organisations, but both East and West Sussex have many animal charities, rescue centres, wildlife centres & animal sanctuaries are at work around us. Many charities listed below are based in Sussex but work to help wildlife overseas, such as Care for the Wild, Bornfree, and the International Fund for Animal Welfare.
Most of the links below connect to the "How you can help" pages but have a roam around sites which are of interest. Please tell a friend about them. Animals need all the help they can get, however little or large that may be.
