RSPCA NSW celebrates National Volunteer Week

By RSPCA NSW

RSPCA NSW thanks our volunteers who give their time to help animals across the state
From Monday 17 to Sunday 23 May, RSPCA NSW celebrates the pawsitive contribution our volunteers have made to animal welfare during National Volunteer Week 2021.

This year’s National Volunteer Week is a chance to recognise our volunteers who went the extra mile to reconnect with the organisation and reimagine the ways they provide support during the devastating droughts, bushfires, floods, and ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

RSPCA NSW incorporates 2924 volunteers across the state who gave 220,000 hours to helping people and animals this past year, including a couple of volunteers who are celebrating 40 years with RSPCA NSW.

There is no one way to volunteer with RSPCA NSW;

  • Our volunteers utilised their professional skills or hobbies to assist with the day-to-day operations of our shelters, Care Centre and op shops.
  • RSPCA NSW branches rehomed animals and provided crucial community assistance via fundraising drives in their townships.

Foster carers provided loving home environments for animals to grow, mature and recover.

RSPCA NSW General Manager, Community and Engagement Ursula McGeown said, "our volunteers champion the RSPCA NSW name within their local communities and their dedication and selflessness continues to give a voice to the abandoned, neglected and injured animals who need them.

"The work our volunteers do is invaluable, it creates a life-changing difference to animals in need, and RSPCA NSW would not be where we are today without the helping hand of our amazing volunteers."

Please check all of our latest volunteer opportunities online if you or someone you know is interested in volunteering for RSPCA NSW.
