Our Volunteers

I joined VfCA in December 2019 and I have found a home for my climate concerns. I meet fantastic, inspiring and motivated people all wanting to help animals - including us!  I love working to ensure that you have the same opportunity and fulfilment that I have within VfCA, and to do so in a way which aligns with your skills, your available time and how you like to work.

Our volunteers are our lifeblood

Veterinarians for Climate Action is led by an amazing team of volunteers. People who bring passion to our projects and have fun as they do it. We know a strong volunteering environment is the only way we can bring our sustained change, so we support our people every step of the way and help them grow and achieve.


We work in impactful and friendly teams

There are many ways to get involved with us. Our ‘teams’ structure is set up to help volunteers find an area they can contribute and thrive in. Each of our teams:

  • focuses on a particular topic or way of working
  • has a team leader (or two)
  • has fortnightly or monthly meetings
  • manages their own project
  • come together from time to time to work on major campaigns.


We support our volunteers

Everyone is worthy and deserving of kindness, community, and the ability to grow. That’s why if you volunteer with us you always have:  

  • a role in the organisation that best suits your skills, interests and available time
  • a safe, healthy and harassment-free environment in which to perform your role
  • supervision, support and the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback
  • the right to say “no"
  • the right to be treated with fairness and respect.


We'll help you find the team best for you. You're welcome to join multiple teams, or even set up your own!
