Here is the full list of things that you can do to enrich your 2018 and help the lives of many animals in need.
We rely on and are so grateful for all the hard work and dedication that our volunteers give to the RSPCA. Whether you are an ambulance driver, wildlife hospital volunteer, vet surgery, an animal attendant, fostering or even one of the call centre operators; each play an important role in making the lives of animals better and happier. It truly is a fun, exciting and rewarding experience for all of those who take the plunge and volunteer. You won’t look back!
There are over 10 different RSPCA shelters across Queensland with a bunch of different roles to suit everyone. Some of these include volunteering in the Op Shop, at RSPCA World for Pets, Customer Service or the Fostering department (just to name a few). We are always in need of some more helping hands, so if you would like to volunteer with us today, view our current volunteer positions and apply today!
If you are struggling to find cafes and restaurants near you that supply humane food, check out the RSPCA’s Choose Wisely website to find one near you! Also, not to mention the amazingly yummy food sold at the Black Cat Café at RSPCA Wacol. If your business serves higher welfare options on the menu, it’s free to sign up online too!
If you are searching for a new furry family member, head down to your local RSPCA to adopt your newest family member. By adopting an RSPCA pet, you are giving these animals a second chance at life!
All of RSPCA pets undergo health and behaviour assessments prior to adoption - so don’t sweat the small stuff, we have that covered! RSPCA pet desexed (excluding pocket pets), vaccinated, microchipped, worm and flea treated. All you need to do is find a furry loved one from our RSPCA rescue pets available to adopt and then chat to the adoption team to select the most suitable pet for you and your family.
If you are not ready to make the life-long commitment of owning a pet, maybe you could consider fostering an RSPCA pet?
By fostering an RSPCA pet, you are temporarily looking after the animal at your house until the pet finds a home, or is ready to be desexed etc. This is a great way for you and your family to look after an animal for a shorter amount of time. If you like the sound of becoming an RSPCA foster carer, please call (07) 3426 9997 or apply online today.
