Volunteer from the comfort of your own home and make the world of difference.

Volunteer From Home

RSPCA NSW is seeking volunteers to provide volunteering assistance from their home, in their own time! As our locations are not easily accessible to all, volunteering can be provided by making enrichment items such as toys, blankets, jumpers or enclosures for the animals and donating them via mail or dropping them off in person at your closest RSPCA NSW location.

All materials will have to be provided by you, however, we highly encourage using recycled materials such as toilet rolls, old clothing, bedsheets or fleece blankets. Templates and patterns will be accessible to you and can act as inspiration.

As a home volunteer, you will help provide support to RSPCA NSW and the animals in care, in your own time and location. RSPCA NSW will ensure you receive appropriate training and will provide ongoing support for other opportunities within the organisation, if required.

Times involved:  At your own time!

Location: Your home or local community group
