Shepparton Wildlife Shelter
Every year, hundreds of thousands of native animals are injured, orphaned, or become sick, often because of some interaction with people or pets. We provide food, emergency relief and support for wildlife in need.
Volunteers play a key role in wildlife rescue and care. Not only will you be learning new skills and helping animals in need, you can make new friends and create an enriching experience for yourself as well. If you're able to lend a hand or give some of your spare time, then get in touch and find out what you can do today.
Almost all wildlife care is done by unpaid volunteers. While the number of native animals needing help is increasing, volunteer numbers are not keeping up. Most groups provide training if you want to help with hands-on care. All groups also need support volunteers to help with administration, fundraising and other duties, which free up the carers to focus on their rescue and rehabilitation work.
