Animal Welfare Regular - less than 6 months Ingleside NSW

About this opportunity is a registered charity that believes in saving and re-homing as many cats, dogs and other pets as we can from the council pounds across NSW. For many years Monika Biernacki and a group of volunteers have been rescuing cats and dogs from death row and successfully re-homing them with permanent and loving owners. Monika's DoggieRescue has a NO KILL policy so all pets we get from the pound are re-housed or stay with us for their life. This policy includes accepting former DoggieRescue pets back if their owners discard them. We have up to 200 dogs, plus cats, rabbits and guinea pigs up for adoption at any time. Over a year we save about 500 dogs.

Customer Service is a busy and physical role which is lots of fun. The primary responsibility is to help the dog walking volunteers to register including a brief induction, a bit of computer info entry, and transacting payments.  The role also includes answering the phone, chatting to visitors about the adoption and foster process,  looking after the DoggieRescue shop (selling merchandise and keeping it looking fabulous), receiving donations, generally helping out with some cleaning of the shop and office and helping to look after some of our smaller doggies in the office (and you may get some doggie cuddles!!).    We are currently looking for volunteers to help on weekends 10am - 2pm or 11am - 3pm Or later dependant on activity
