Volunteering: The Centre is always in need of reliable volunteers to help with the up-keep of the centre and the feeding and socializing of the animals.

What does volunteering involve?

Morning volunteering involves a lot of cleaning. All cat and kitten modules need to be cleaned thoroughly. Washing need to be done, dishes need to be washed and floors need to be swept and mopped. Mornings are very busy times at the centre.

Afternoon volunteering is a bit different. All animals need to be fed, modules need to be swept if they are unclean. Litter trays emptied if need be and this is also the time when we get a lot of the public coming in to look at the animals.

Dog walking is another great way to help. Our dogs all enjoy going for walks down at the river. As some of them stay here for lengths of time, leash walking is very important to maintain as everyone wants a dog that is obedient during walks.
Other volunteer work from time to time is available and listed here.

Stand for Committee: As a registered charity the CHB SPCA is managed by a committee and we are always in need of reliable professional people for that role. You will generally be of a professional background with business, financial, management or operational skills gained from running your own business or from workforce experience in order to be able to deal with the unique strategic and financial decision making of a charitable organisation. You will need to have the time to contribute as these positions are also very operationally focused given that we are run primarily by volunteers. If you are interested please contact us by phone on 06 858 8933 (ask for the manager) or by e-mail in confidence. Please note these are voluntary positions given that we are not funded by government or by the SPCA national office. Please see How Your Donation Helps for more information.
