Volunteer with us!

Are you a passionate advocate for all animals like us? Do you have some spare time to give? We are always on the lookout for volunteers wanting to make a difference and those who take pride in the skills they contribute to our animal welfare cause. If so, this is a great opportunity to add value to Hope4Paws Animal Rescue and assist us in saving the lives of unwanted pets. 

We rely heavily on our incredible, dedicated volunteers who give selflessly in our ongoing mission to help save lives and we are always grateful for more help. Dogs in such situations rely on a team of regular volunteers to receive the much-needed care and treatment they deserve. We are seeking volunteers who are reliable and understand the importance of their role at our rescue. If you believe this is you, please fill out the application and one of our team members will be in touch soon! We look forward to you becoming a part of the volunteer family at Hope4Paws Animal Rescue. 

We do not have specific volunteering shifts, as we are a foster care based rescue. Volunteer work required includes transporting dogs, BBQ Fundraisers, Tin Rattle Collections, Dog walking, Dog events, etc.

At this time, as we are a foster care based rescue, we are unable to provide work experience placements for students. If you have further questions regarding this, please email us at volunteer@hope4pawsanimalrescue.org.au.  

Please note all volunteers are required to attend a volunteer induction session prior to commencing their volunteer position. 



We maintain strict protocols to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers and animals, which is priority as we progress to a COVID-normal. In line with government guidelines, we are taking the necessary precautions with safety front of mind. We are committed to the highest standards of health and safety for our volunteers, foster carers, staff, adopters, and the general public.
