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!
