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.
