Volunteer and foster care program

Our animal care volunteer program is currently full.

Details of our next volunteer intake and information session are being confirmed. Please check back for details.

Volunteer program

To volunteer at our Animal Management Centre, you need to be a dedicated animal lover over 18 years of age.

The program gives Logan residents an opportunity to help our Animal Care Officers care for and rehome animals.

We invite residents who have experience in grooming and photography to help prepare our animals for sale. Hydrobathing and photographing animals for display on our website will help us rehome animals.

To apply for the volunteer program, you will need to make an appointment to visit the Animal Management Centre to:

  • fill in an application form
  • fill in a Queensland Police Authority and Indemnification form
  • give us a copy of your current photo identification (drivers licence, passport or 18+ card)
  • complete our Q-fever screening – either by giving us evidence of your Q-fever immunity screening status, your Q-fever immunisation history, or by agreeing to the Workplace Health and Safety - Q-fever screening and vaccination process.

Please note we will not process incomplete applications.

For more information about volunteering, please call us on 07 3412 3412.

Foster carer program

We work with animal rescue groups to provide temporary and long-term care for animals. Sometimes we need more help, and that’s when we ask for volunteer foster carers.

We’re looking for animal foster carers who are aged over 18 years, love animals, are reliable and compassionate, and can offer a safe, secure home environment.

Our foster care program involves:

  • short-term rehoming of mother cats and / or dogs and their litters in a home environment
  • caring for senior animals while they are waiting for rehoming in the senior pets for seniors program
  • caring for animals with minor behavioural issues, or animals recovering from surgery
  • caring for kittens and puppies that are too young to go into the rehoming program.

To apply, you will need to make an appointment to visit the Animal Management Centre to:

  • fill in an application form
  • fill in a Queensland Police Authority and Indemnification form
  • give us a copy of your current photo identification (drivers licence, passport or 18+ card)
  • complete our Q-fever screening – either by giving us evidence of your Q-fever immunity screening status, your Q-fever immunisation history, or by agreeing to the Workplace Health and Safety - Q-fever screening and vaccination process.

Please note we will not process incomplete applications.

If you become an animal foster carer, we will give you more information about the program and conduct a safety and suitability check on your home (fencing / containment and yard space).
