Op shop volunteers urgently needed

RSPCA op shops provide vital funding to RSPCA Victoria, helping us to care for over 14,000 animals in our shelters each year.

To run our op shops, we rely on the generous support of our volunteers. Prior to the pandemic, we had approximately 500 op shop volunteers. As of the end of February 2023, we now have 158 volunteers.

We are currently seeking 350 volunteers to join our team in 2023!
