As a Volunteer Driver, your mission is to transport animals from the RSPCA Campus to other shelters and partnered locations in our trusty RSPCA Animal Transfer vehicle.

Your road trip duties will include:

📞 Coordinate with staff at affiliated organisations and businesses for animal drop-offs and pick-ups – teamwork makes the dream work!

🚦 Ensure the well-being of the animals in your care during the journey – safety first, always!


To succeed on this mission, you'll need:

🚙 A courteous and considerate driving style – road manners are the key to a smooth ride!

🗣️ Good communication skills – you'll be the friendly voice representing the RSPCA!

📜 A clean, valid driver's license – hit the road legally and responsibly!

🚦 Strong driving skills and the ability to navigate traffic like a pro – you've got this!

When can you hit the road?

🗓️ Shifts are from 9am to 3pm, but be prepared for a bit of flexibility due to unpredictable traffic conditions – it's all part of the adventure! At the moment we are looking for volunteers for Wednesdays and Fridays!

⏰ We request a weekly commitment – let's create lasting impact together! Full orientation and training will be provided.
