If you are unable to foster or volunteer directly but are still looking for a way in which to help DoggieRescue, you may be able to assist with the donation of goods we are searching for to make the lives of our pets and carers a little easier.

If you can help out with any of the items listed below, we'd love to hear from you!

Volunteer Opportunities for all experience levels

  • With no experience you can walk our dogs or even transport them between various locations
  • With minimal training you can help in the office or promoting us at off-site events
  • We can provide more intensive training so that you can help with feeding our dogs and cats or even assisting our kennel hands
  • Experienced volunteers can even go on to advanced tasks including work placement for those studying in fields related to animal care

Corporate Volunteering


Corporate groups are particularly welcome to spend their community volunteer days at our Doggiewood shelter at Ingleside, where more than 70 dogs reside.

We can currently only handle small groups of 6 or less people, Tuesday to Thursday.  As DoggieRescue is so popular, bookings are essential and need to be made WELL IN ADVANCE.

As surely as the sun will rise... there will be laundry at Doggiewood


We wash about 20 loads of washing each day. You can either pick up laundry from our shelter at Ingleside and take it home and bring it back folded when convenient or visit the shelter between 10am – 3pm Tue – Sun to help with hanging up laundry and folding once dry. Alternatively, we also have some paid laundry work on a casual basis -- call us on 9486 3133 or email
