Opportunities may differ between locations based on current availabilities and need. Located in Rutherford, the shelter is also the animal holding facility for Cessnock, Lake Macquarie, Maitland and Newcastle City Councils. The shelter offers an extensive Foster Care program, volunteering and corporate support opportunities and a retail shop.
