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

You will be able to choose which area you work in, and can roster yourself in for shift days and times that suit you.

As an SPCA volunteer you will:

  • Have a love for animals and an awareness of their behaviour
  • 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 animals.

At this time we have a waitlist new volunteers who need a flexible schedule – but if you are able to commit to a regular weekly volunteering time we can get you going right away. Please get in touch either way, and we will do our best to get you on site and helping out as soon as possible!
