Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge Volunteers

We cannot run our refuge without the help of our volunteers. We require reliable, dedicated people to help care for the cats and dogs, seven days a week, 365 days a year. The work is not just animal hands-on as we mainly need people to clean, cook and prepare food, wash and hang out towels and sheets, clean up yards, gardeners, and trades people. The work is not glamorous but it is rewarding, and you will meet like-minded people and lots of lovely cats and dogs. If you are over 18, we welcome your interest and application. Most shifts start at 6am as we need the refuge and the animals to be ready for the public when we open at 10am.
