Auckland (Mangere) Centre

Barn and farm volunteer

We need help in our barn and farm area. The day starts with assisting with feeding farm animals and cleaning their pens and paddocks.

Types of animals vary from poultry to horses, therefore, volunteers in this area need to be comfortable around both the smaller and larger animals and prepared to muck in when needed, in all weathers.

It's not all cleaning though we would love you to spend quality time with our animals after the cleaning and feeding duties to help make them as socially adoptable as possible.

We need volunteers who have:

  • Are fairly fit, hardworking and reliable.
  • Excellent communication skills – both verbal and written.
  • Are at least 16 years old.

You must be able to commit to a regular four-hour shift for a period of at least six months. We are looking for volunteers to help during the week only. Weekend applications will not be processed.

  • Morning shift: 8:30am - 12pm
  • Afternoon start time: 1pm - 3:30pm

If you have any questions, please phone us on 09 256 7304 or email auckland.volunteer@spca.nz.
