Animal Care - RSPCA QLD

As an animal welfare organisation, RSPCA Qld have a variety of different volunteer roles involving hands-on animal interaction.

These roles are incredibly rewarding, but be warned - keeping animals happy and healthy requires a lot of cleaning! It can be physically demanding, and we need assistance every day of the year - whether it's sunshine or rain, a public holiday or a weekday. Of course, it's not just cleaning; there's plenty of opportunities for enrichment activities too. 

Volunteer roles can involve working with:

  • Domestic animals (dogs, cats, pocket pets, or farmyard) at one of our Animal Care Centres
  • Domestic animals recovering from illness or medical procedures at the Domestic Hospital or clinic
  • Wildlife animals recovering or rehabilitating in preparation for release to the wild, or to a wildlife carer for further rehabilitation

If you're keen to volunteer in an animal care role, please have a look at our current vacancies and submit an application.
