Volunteer Branches

RSPCA NSW's 28 volunteer branches are the backbone of our work across the state, and are run exclusively by volunteers. They play a vital role in animal adoptions, desexing programs, foster care, fundraising initiatives and so much more. They also provide education and support to their local communities. In those areas without a shelter, volunteer branches are the source of care and comfort for animals in need until they are able to be rehomed.

Without the assistance of volunteers, these branches would not survive. RSPCA NSW is always looking for people to lend a hand. Anyone aged 13 and over can apply to become an RSPCA NSW volunteer branch member.

If you are over 16 years old, your local RSPCA NSW volunteer branch would love to talk to you about dedicating your time to helping animals in need. Please note that some branches require their volunteers to be at least 18 years old.

If you would like to apply to become an RSPCA NSW volunteer branch member, please download the form below, enter your details and mail it to your local volunteer branch.

How you can help

Looking to adopt? Search now for dogs, cats and other pets available for rehoming at your local RSPCA shelter.

RSPCA has joined forces with Bendigo Bank and Visa to create an exciting range of credit cards that offer Australians a way to help animals in need.

Each year, over 40,000 animals turn to RSPCA NSW for help. Every donation from you is vital in rescuing and caring for them.

CLEAR THE SHELTERS TERMS AND CONDITIONS

  1. The initiative runs in New South Wales only from 26 February to 29 February 2016 inclusive.
  2. The initiative applies to all adoption animals available in RSPCA NSW shelters and Care Centres, and to animals available for adoption through participating RSPCA Volunteer Branches. The initiative does not extend to RSPCA NSW animals offered for adoption through Petbarn outlets.
  3. Animals adopted during the initiative are subject to availability. Should all available animals be rehoused prior to the end of the initiative, the offer will no longer be honoured. No rainchecks are available.
  4. This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
  5. RSPCA NSW retains the right to refuse an adoption if it does not comply with standard operational processes.
  6. A maximum of two adoption animals may be adopted by any household.
  7. No animal will be placed on hold for any period. Adoption must be by personal attendance at one of the abovementioned facilities.
  8. Photographic personal identification must be presented at the time of adoption.
  9. A suitable carry cage must be used to transport birds, felines and small animals, including pocket pets, from the premises and during the journey home. If you do not have access to an appropriate carrier, you can purchase a carrier at the time of adopting your companion. Cardboard carriers are available to purchase for $10 from RSPCA shelters and Care Centres while stocks last.
  10. Suitable leads and harnesses must be used to transport canines from the premises. Canines must be appropriately restrained within the vehicle for the journey home. If you do not have access to an appropriate lead and harness, suitable equipment is available for purchase at the time of adoption while stocks last.
  11. Suitable transport for livestock and horses must be considered prior to adoption, and animals must be collected on the day of adoption.
  12. We understand that sometimes, despite your and RSPCA NSW’s best endeavours, your new pet doesn’t settle into your lifestyle. For this reason, you can return any animal to a RSPCA NSW shelter within 21 days from the time of collection to receive a replacement authorisation in accordance with our replacement policy, or a refund of the adoption fee paid. Please note: merchandise purchased cannot be returned as part of the replacement of an animal. Should a product be faulty, you can return that product, in its original condition, to the facility you purchased the merchandise from within seven (7) days and RSPCA NSW will replace that item.
