Laundry Volunteer

The RSPCA NSW Tighes Hill Veterinary Hospital seeks strong, dedicated individuals to give hands-on help in the laundry. Assistance is needed for large volumes of washing and drying laundry each day. Please note, this volunteer role does not include hands-on interaction with any animals, however aiding with laundry is a very important and helpful role.

Your assistance directly benefits our animals by providing clean blankets and towels for a warm and cosy stay while they are in our care. RSPCA NSW will ensure that you receive appropriate training and will provide ongoing support to explore other opportunities with the organisation, if required.
