Become a Volunteer
Are you passionate about animal welfare? Do you want to make a difference by getting involved and helping animals in need? Are you dedicated and willing to give your time to make a regular commitment to help animals – animals that have been abandoned, displaced and possibly abused and neglected? If so, you may be just the person we are looking for to become an RSPCA NSW volunteer.
Volunteers are an integral part of the RSPCA NSW team. They play an active and vital role in helping to support our work to improve the welfare of animals, and protect them from cruelty and neglect. Volunteering involves commitment, dedication and passion. It's a fantastic way to meet new people and be directly involved in the animal welfare cause.
Some volunteer positions at RSPCA NSW involve face-to-face interaction with animals. Other roles provide support without direct contact. Whatever your interest, you should be able to find something that suits you, whether that is in animal care, customer service, events, customer service or local community fundraising. Our volunteers perform all sorts of roles, from fostering our littlest animal residents to lending a hand at one of RSPCA NSW's annual events, photographing our shelter animals to assisting in our catteries and kennels.
Please note that roles available may differ depending on the branch or shelter.
