“Volunteers are not paid not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.”
— Sherry Anderson
As a charitable organisation with limited staff resources and funds, ACRES is in constant need of volunteers to help with all aspects of our work. Your help makes a world of difference to animals!
Although specific skills may be very helpful, the most important thing is that you care about animals and have a desire to make a difference.
You can commit to volunteering for any length of time and on a flexible basis. It's up to you whether you want to help out on a regular basis and commit to a certain number of hours each week or month, or if you prefer to be on call to help out with certain events.
You can choose to help with just one area of work or a range of different areas.
Once you have registered as a volunteer, we will keep you updated of all upcoming volunteer activities in your particular area/s of interest by email.
Individual volunteer. To sign up as a volunteer please fill in our online application form!
Once you sign up as a volunteer, you will receive regular email call out about events that we need help in and courses that we are having. You can register for the event by reply to the email call out.
To sign up as a Wildlife Rescue Team volunteer, please download the ACRES Wildlife Rescue Team Application Form. You can send the printed form back to us by fax or mail, if so please print on recycled paper to save our environment!

If you would like to earn CIP points for your time volunteering with ACRES and do not have your own CIP form, you can download the ACRES CIP form. If you bring this with you to your volunteering session, an ACRES staff member will sign it for you to endorse your volunteering. Please print on recycled paper to save our environment!
