Auckland (Mangere) Centre

Hospital / ARC volunteer

We need help from patient animal lovers who want to volunteer in a healthcare setting! We have two opportunities for volunteers to help our most vulnerable and sick animals at SPCA.

At our Hospital, you'll support our staff by handling tasks like dishes, cleaning cages, and any other tasks to support our veterinary team. While you won't have much direct animal interaction, this work is invaluable to allow our staff to provide the intensive care our animals need.

In the Animal Recovery Centre (ARC), our volunteers play a crucial role in caring for sick cats and helping them on their path to recovery. We clean cages, feed cats, and sanitize the areas where they receive their care. It's important to note that we deal with cats facing various health challenges, which can sometimes be emotionally demanding.

We need volunteers who:

  • Are comfortable working with vulnerable animals
  • Are able to work independently
  • Are friendly, hardworking, and reliable
  • Are available on weekdays
  • Are able to effectively communicate with staff and other volunteers

Both morning and afternoon shifts are available:

Morning: 8.30am-12pm

Afternoon: 12.30pm-4pm

If you are interested in this role, please apply through the application below.

If you have any questions, please phone us on 09 256 7300 or email jake.lamb@spca.nz.
