Volunteering with us is a fun and rewarding way to donate some of your time. It’s also a great way to meet like minded people and potentially form some lifelong friendships! We have lots of positions available to suit many different circumstances. These include (but are not limited to):

Attending events

We conduct regular events to raise much needed funds and to promote responsible pet ownership. We always need volunteers to help man our stalls, talk to members of the public, sell merchandise, rattle the donation tins and help with sausage sizzles.

Highway collections

We conduct anywhere from 6 - 10 highway collections per year. Tin shaking is a fun and rewarding activity to do with friends, co-workers and family. The more volunteers we have, the more funds we raise. You can really make a difference.


Transport volunteers assist with the collection and distribution of donations and items our animals require. From time to time we also require transport volunteers to pick up newly rescued Project Underdog Rescue animals from pounds and shelters and transport them to vet clinics or their foster homes. You may also assist with taking animals to vet appointments or to events. All animals must be properly restrained during transport. You will need your own car and a current drivers licence.

Property checks

Visiting the homes of potential foster carers and adopters to ensure their home and yard is safe and secure. Property checks are a compulsory part of our application process for foster carers and adopters. A property check usually takes between 10 - 20 minutes. Another volunteer will accompany you for your first property check and you will be given a checklist to complete at each visit. Property checks are only to be conducted during day light.

Once you have completed and submitted the application form our volunteer co-ordinator will get in touch with you to discuss your application further and work out what role(s) you'd best be suited to. We will then invite you to join the Team Project Underdog Rescue private Facebook group where we regularly post our volunteer call outs.

Volunteers must be over the age of 18 years.
