We rely on the community to continue to provide care for the dogs that come into our care every year.

Our volunteers provide invaluable assistance in many different areas and are an integral part of our organisation.

Whether it's helping clean the kennels, feed the dogs or simply taking the dogs for a walk and cuddle- everything helps.

Steps to Becoming a Volunteer

  • Volunteer Application & Resume

    Please complete the Volunteer Application form and return it to us via the listed email along with any information you feel is relevant for us to get to know you!


    Once you have returned your application, you will be contacted to arrange an interview to discuss your volunteering options. When attending the interview we require you to to provide Proof of Identity; for the safety of the animals in our care and for the volunteers who work alongside each other. This can be one of the following: A current Australian Drivers License, 18+ Identification card, or Passport. This documented will be sighted by the president or other authorised person.

    Volunteer Induction

    Attendance at a Volunteer Induction provides a great overview of the GSDs in Need Australia and important information about volunteering with us. This is a general induction which all volunteers must attend and will be followed by further orientation and training relevant to the department you will be volunteering in and the roles which you will be undertaking. 

    Role Specific Induction and Training

    Specific training and induction requirements will vary depending on the roles which you are interested in and will be discussed at interview.
