At RSPCA Victoria, we rely on dedicated and compassionate volunteers to assist with many aspects of our operations - from lending a hand at one of our events to hands-on work caring for animals. Without the support of so many committed volunteers, we simply could not care for the thousands of animals that come into our care each year.
Some important information about becoming a volunteer:
The minimum age to volunteer is 15 years
. We ask our volunteers to make a six month commitment to volunteering, often with four-hour shifts on a weekly or fortnightly basis.
Please note we are unable to provide work experience or offer any student placements
We no longer hold regular information sessions
for those wanting to volunteer, however a brief description of the types of roles we offer can be found below. We are so lucky to have so much interest in our volunteer positions, however this sometimes means demand for places can outweigh need.
Please read through the list of roles we’re currently recruiting for and apply online if you see a role you’re interested in.
If there isn’t a role currently that suits you, keep checking back in as needs and recruitment change daily!
