Corporate Volunteers

AWLQ are delighted to have ongoing support from businesses and corporations across Australia. Support can come in a variety of forms – either financial, physical or through marketing and awareness.

Many companies wish to assist us by offering to help at one of our shelters. This is a fantastic way to get your team’s hands dirty, get involved and complete one of the projects we need done.

Of course being a not for profit organisation, the AWLQ’s resources are limited, schedules are busy and we can not safely manage very large groups of untrained helpers on site. So in order to best make a difference, companies will need to keep numbers limited, conduct full days and be prepared to help where we really need you.

There are 2 options to consider:

OPTION A – Special Projects

  1. Look at AWLQ’s Project Registry below.
  2. Select a project that suits your tax deductable donation, team and timing.
  3. Contact our Business Development Manager to discuss this helping us: Neil Rangeley ph 07 5509 9057 email bdm@awlqld.com.au

OPTION B – Corporate Volunteer Experience Day

Alternatively you may like to consider choosing to do a Corporate Volunteer Experience Day at one of our shelters. *Please note these days are very popular and we are regularly booked out months in advance.*

As you can imagine, scheduling our limited staff, resources, training new volunteers, logistics and capacity to manage this 1 day process can be very time consuming. As a result, we ask for a $39 exc GST per person administration fee to cover the costs of training, WHS,  Insurance and a dedicated staff member for the day. We thank you for your contribution to cover these costs.

For safety and scheduling reasons, numbers are limited to 10 people per site.

All participants must wear enclosed shoes and long pants on-site.

The Corporate Volunteer Day schedule runs as follows:

9am – 10am:      Briefing, site orientation and induction

10 – 11am:          Shelter maintenance, special projects and tasks

11 – 11.15am:    BYO Morning Tea

11:15 – 12.30:     Enrichment projects, donation sorting and allocation

12: 30 – 1pm:     BYO Lunch

1pm -2pm:          Animal enrichment experience (Group 1 Cats & Kittens, Group 2 Dogs & Puppies)
