Small Animals Volunteer

Do you love bunnies, rodents, and birds and want to make a difference to the lives of these small creatures? Well, this could be the opportunity for you! We are seeking Small Animal Superstars to help with the daily care of our small animals and birds.

What will be involved:

  • Cleaning cages, hutches, aviaries
  • Feeding animals
  • General cleaning of the areas including laundry, mopping, litter trays and dishes
  • Providing enrichment and socialisation for our animals

As a small animals volunteer you will:

  • Have a love for animals
  • Be 16 years or older
  • Be able to follow instructions
  • Be able to take initiative
  • Be reliable and hardworking

An onsite induction and hands-on training will be provided to successful applicants, and ongoing opportunities to learn more about the care of our small animals will be made available,

We have morning and afternoon shifts available, seven days a week and a flexible rostering system that we can work in with your schedule. We ask that you can commit to at least three shifts per month (but the more the merrier!)

If you have any questions, please email christchurch.volunteer@spca.nz.
