Our amazing volunteers are an integral part of our organisation. They are highly dedicated and passionate individuals and we simply could not do the work we do without them.

We offer a range of rewarding volunteer opportunities. If you have a few spare hours a week, a love of animals and want to support your local community, Lort Smith might be the place for you!

Current vacancies


Lort Smith is ceasing all onsite volunteering and Pet Therapy visits effective 5pm Monday 23 March until further notice.

Our volunteers are an important part of the fabric of Lort Smith, but for the safety of volunteers and the public, we must reduce the numbers of people onsite so we can help contain this virus which is causing devastation around the world.

We are looking forward to the time when we can welcome volunteers back.

Updates will be provided on our website and social media channels.
