Come and volunteer with us!
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 cultivated our culture to motivate and inspire our people. We are inclusive, supportive and welcoming and we believe that if we surround ourselves with like-minded people who are passionate about our cause then together, we can achieve greatness.
As we all our animals are placed into foster homes, our volunteer opportunities are generally around fundraising, spreading awareness and assisting with outreach programs. If you’re looking for hands on animal care then we recommend getting in touch with a local animal shelter.
Tin shaking is a fun and rewarding activity you can do with our other friendly volunteers or with your friends, co-workers or family. Our collections take place between 10am and 2:15pm on Saturdays and Sundays and run from March through to November. The more volunteers we have, the more funds we raise, so you will 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 or from appointments. You will need your own car and a current driver’s licence.
Our property assessors visit the homes of potential foster carers and adopters to ensure their home and yard is safe and secure. You will be checking fences, doors, sleeping arrangements and looking for any potentially harmful items. Another volunteer will accompany you for your first property check and you will be given a checklist to complete at each visit to guide you. Property checks usually take between 10 – 20 minutes and are only conducted during day light hours.
Do you enjoy being hands on and/or chatting with members of the public? Our volunteer assistants help with the set up and delivery of events such as market stalls, BBQs, workshops/seminars, online auctions, trivia nights, outreach supply packing and our calendar photoshoots. We are located in Coburg Victoria and attend events across Metropolitan Melbourne throughout the year to help us fundraise.
Are you a graphic designer? Professional photographer? Copywriter? If you have a specific skill then we would love to hear about it! Our skilled volunteers work closely with our leadership team on specific projects and we can never have too many of them. We also advertise for skilled volunteers via Seek and on our Facebook page.
