Volunteer Information

Volunteering with Us

If you are interested in volunteering for POOPS WA, registration is possible via our online application form or if you have any difficulties with this process or have any questions please leave your query on our messaging service by calling 1300 1100 92.

Step 1

All volunteers need a current National Police Certificate (NPC) OR Working With Children Check (WWCC). These certificates are obtained by yourself and available to use for your own requirements. Whichever you choose, the certificate is required to be no older than twelve (12) months from the date of your application with POOPS WA.

When you have received the certificate, upload with your application to volunteer with POOPS WA. Please wait until you have received the certificate before submitting a Volunteer Application to POOPS.

If you already have either  certificate (no older than twelve months), please upload a copy of the certificate at the required section of the application to volunteer with POOPS WA.

Step 2

Fill out the POOPS online application form or send a query through the website. On the application form, attach (upload)  the required ID and select/upload your NPC or WWCC. Also indicate your preferences – dogs or cats, dog walking, feeding, helping with transport to/from vet, how far you are willing to travel from home – or in which suburbs you can assist. Please also indicate if you can help with administration or coordination.

Step 3

Registration is complete when you have undergone the brief induction process:

(a) When you have read, understood and checked the Induction video;
(b) Had a face-to-face meeting with your Coordinator.

Exactly when you will have an opportunity to assist depends on client demand in your nominated area.

Volunteers are required to be over the age of 18. We can accept younger volunteers, however this requires additional information for your application – please email membership@poopswa.org.au for the requirements.

We look forward to welcoming you to the POOPS WA team!
