Run exclusively by volunteers, the branch holds multiple fundraising events, including Million Paws Walk. They also work closely with the Illawarra Shelter providing financial assistance for emergency veterinary procedures and supporting the shelter with resources needed in caring for all animals. If you have a genuine concern for animal welfare and enjoy meeting like-minded people, why not lend a helping hand? Join the local Illawarra Volunteer Branch and help us raise much needed funds for the care and enrichment of animal lives.

Find out more Branches and Support Team FAQ'sDo volunteer branches respond to cruelty complaints? Our volunteer branches cannot investigate animal cruelty matters. To report cruelty, please phone our contact centre on 1300 278 3589. Do volunteer branches offer free animal desexing? Some volunteer branches are financially able to offer subsidised desexing and veterinary assistance for pets of lower income families and pensioners. What happens to the money raised by volunteer branches? It is spent on animal welfare in the same local area it was raised in. Is a volunteer branch a shelter? Our volunteer branches are not shelters but some locations do organise foster carers and help rehome animals. Volunteer branches predominantly fundraise and provide animal care assistance. Do I have to become a member to volunteer? You do not need to be a member to volunteer at any of our shelters or community events. And if you are a volunteer, you do not automatically become a member. Membership is a separate process to volunteering. If you wish to become part of an executive committee at one of our regional branches, you will need to become a financial member first. Will I receive free or discounted tickets at RSPCA events? Members do not exclusively receive free or discounted tickets for events. However, there are promotions, special invitations and discounts to certain events for all our supporters. Because you’re making a difference to animal welfare, we hope that volunteering with us is a rewarding experience! If I move interstate, can my membership be transferred? Unfortunately, all states run different volunteer programs and you will need to apply to that specific RSPCA.
