If you are passionate about animal welfare and looking for a rewarding volunteer role then perhaps consider becoming a driver for RSPCA Qld.  Being a large organisation, responsible for the care of over 50,000 animals annually, we are looking for reliable individuals to help transport both domestic and wild animals locally and regionally, and help with other tasks, such as collecting donated food.  Every day we need assistance moving animals between campuses, pounds facilities, rehoming centres, vet surgeries and carers.  You would be responsible for safely transporting animals and representing RSPCA within the community.  You would be provided with all the necessary equipment, including an RSPCA vehicle, during your shift.   Please note drivers must have an open licence.

What skills and characteristics do I need?

  • Be a courteous and considerate driver
  • Good communication skills
  • Hold a clean, manual open drivers license
  • Sound driving skills and the ability to cope in traffic
  • Physically fit and able to lift 10kg
  • Good animal handling skills
  • There are a variety of shifts available across a seven day week.
  • Please be aware that due to the nature of this role we ask you to be flexible to an extent with your shift time – it can be difficult to judge the length of a particular trip due to changing traffic and weather conditions
  • We request a minimum commitment of one shift per week for a minimum of 3 months.  Orientation and animal training will be provided.

When can I volunteer?

PLEASE NOTE: As part of volunteering with us you will be required to purchase an RSPCA Volunteer T-shirt for $30. It is also a requirement that before handling animals at the RSPCA you have an up to date Tetanus vaccination.
