  • Location: Carlisle, Cumbria
  • Salary: £35,000 - £40,000
  • Closing date: Rolling applications

Who we are

Oak Tree Animals’ Charity is based in Carlisle, Cumbria, and serves the North East, North West and the Borders, providing non-judgemental and compassionate care to animals and their owners.

The charity is dedicated to the improvement of animal welfare in the region, proactively supporting animals and encouraging people to prioritise animal welfare through our community programmes, advocacy and rehoming services.

We provide holistic support and care for animals and their owners to reach long-term solutions that avoid the need for rehoming but when that is unavoidable, Oak Tree provides a safe home for animals, rehabilitating and preparing them for the next stage in their lives.

The charity also prepares potential owners for life with a new companion and offers the help and support necessary for both animal and owner to live a long and happy life together.

Oak Tree does more besides this by working with communities, government services, local businesses and other charities to provide whatever help is necessary to allow animals, and their owners to live happy and healthy lives.
