We are looking for volunteers to help care for our dogs. You must have a calm, gentle, kind, patient manner to work with dogs from a range of situations.
The work we ask our canine volunteers to do is quite strenuous and you must be willing to walk, socialize and train dogs in all weather, frost, rain or shine. You will be required to help with the cleaning of the dog pens, dishes and to walk the dogs once the cleaning is done.
We need volunteers that fit these criteria:
- Commit to at least one 2-4 hour shift per week
- Between the hours of 8:00am – 4:00pm
- A good level of fitness
- Are able to commit for a period of at least six months

You must be confident at handling various sizes, breeds and ages of dogs.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for SPCA. Volunteers are a vital part of the SPCA team and we simply couldn't do the work we do without the large number of volunteers who donate their time to help the animals.
Please note: Our centres and op shops have minimum age requirements to volunteer. For op shops the minimum age is 15 years. For volunteering at a centre, please enquire with them directly if you are under 16 years of age. You may need to provide an up-to-date Ministry of Justice check prior to starting. Please be aware that during the application process we will ask about any medical conditions (physical or mental) we need to be aware of to ensure your safety while volunteering for us.
