Volunteer at an event or shelter and make the world of difference.

Illawarra Shelter

Volunteers play an important role at RSPCA NSW and help with a wide variety of tasks across the state. Volunteering with us involves commitment, dedication and passion. It’s a fantastic way to meet new people and be directly involved in protecting animals from cruelty and neglect. Opportunities may differ between locations based on current availabilities and need.

Located in Unanderra, our Illawarra Shelter acts as the animal holding facility for Shellharbour and Wollongong City Councils, housing stray cats, dogs and livestock.

The RSPCA Illawarra Shelter sells pet retail products and accommodates the School Holiday and Foster Care programs.
