Without the continued support of our valued volunteers, RSPCA Qld would not be able to help the abused, abandoned or injured animals that come into our care every year.

Whether you're a volunteer Rescue Unit Driver out in the field, an Animal Care Assistant in one of our shelters, or one of our Community Outreach and Education Assistants 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 470 paid staff, and over 2,000 volunteers who cover a range of different roles in the organisation, click here to see our volunteers in action.
