Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge Volunteers

We cannot run our refuge without the help of our volunteers. We are always needing reliable, dedicated people to help care for the cats and dogs, seven days a week. 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 of our volunteers start quite early as we need the refuge and the cats and dogs to be ready for the public when we open at 10am. Dogs need to be fed and exercised, pens cleaned, cats fed and their pens cleaned all before 10am. You can work with either cats or dogs depending on your preference, but we do need a regular commitment over a minimum of 3 months. Once you send in an application, our Volunteer Coordinator will assess your availability but may not make contact with you unless or until we have an opening on the days and times you are available. 

Please complete our Volunteer Application form. All volunteers will attend an orientation day once they commit themselves to volunteering. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our team.
