In order to ensure that we comply with government guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community, unfortunately we are not recruiting any new volunteers at this point in time. Express your interest in volunteering, so that we can contact you when our regular volunteering program is back up and running!
Without the continued support of our valued volunteers, RSPCA Qld would not be able to help the 52,961 abused, abandoned or injured animals that come into our care every year.
Whether you're a volunteer ambulance driver out in the field, an animal attendant in one of our shelters, or one of our call centre operators working directly with the community - each of our passionate and dedicated volunteers play a pivotal role in supporting RSPCA Qld to improve the welfare of animals and protect them from neglect and cruelty.
We operate with 400 paid staff, and over 5,500 volunteers who cover a range of different roles in the organisation, click here to see our volunteers in action.

Our State Council members are volunteers and all of our centres across Queensland are run by volunteers. We are so very, very proud of each and every person who makes that crucial decision to support us. Their dedication, their time, their energy and their skills are what make us who we are, and what will make us who we become. With each new volunteer that joins us, our positive impact on the lives of animals grows stronger.
Volunteering just might change your life - it's changed ours. And it will certainly change the lives of many animals in our care.
