K9 Dog Rescue


Perhaps you just love dogs, care for animal welfare or would love to level-up your animal handling experience, then you should volunteer for K9 Rescue!


We are a not-for-profit organisation established in 1990 to rescue, care for and rehome dogs. K9 Rescue Group strives to educate the community about responsible dog ownership. We provide a regional service in Western Australia to the Peel, Rockingham, Kwinana and Cockburn areas.

At K9 Rescue Group we are passionate about creating an environment where a dog is treated as a rightful and respected member of the community. We have many volunteers who work tirelessly to successfully rehome around 500 dogs a year.

We seek to promote the significant benefits that pet ownership brings to the community and aim to promote responsible dog ownership too.


General kennel hand duties include but are not limited to cleaning kennels, walking dogs, feeding dogs, bathing dogs and administering medication to dogs. You will also be interacting with members of the public introducing them to dogs in the hope of rehoming K9 dogs into their forever family.

K9 Rescue is based in Nambeelup. Please note that there is no public transport nearby, so you will need your own transport. Volunteers will be given 4 – 5 hour shifts on a weekly or fortnightly basis (depending on your availability).



K9 Rescue rehome approximately 500 dogs per year. It is an amazing organisation to be a part of because it promotes responsible dog ownership and gives countless dogs a second chance at life in a loving home.

By volunteering at K9 you will gain Kennel Hand experience as well as valuable life skills including organisation, communication and time management skills whilst working as part of a team of people who share a passion for dogs.

This is a great opportunity for anyone who loves animals or is studying anything animal related, e.g. small animal medicine.
