Volunteer Nomination

Volunteer Recognition Program

Volunteers play a vital role with RSPCA Tasmania.  Without the dedication of volunteers, our organisaiton would be unable to function.  The purpose of this procedure is to outline how the contribution of our volunteers will be recognised in line with our partnership arrangement with ANZ Tasmania.

While the contribution of all volunteers is highly valued, the purpose of the RSPCA Volunteer Recognition Program is to recognise and celebrate outstanding contributions in areas that align with the values of our organisation.

How to nominate

ANZ Tasmania is generously sponsoring the RSPCA Tasmania Volunteer Recognition program as part of a wider partnership arrangement. Each month, a gift voucher (courtesy of ANZ Tasmania) will be awarded to an RSPCA Tasmania volunteer.

All volunteers in all areas of the business are eligible to be nominated including (but not limited to) foster caring, animal care roles, cuddles club, gardening / maintenance, dog walking (Pooch Pals), administrative support, board and board sub-committee participation and fundraising / event participation.

Each month, the CEO will call for nominations to recognise outstanding volunteer contributions and achievements in the preceeding month.

Anyone can nominate a volunteer for recognition using one or more of the following categories that align with the values of our business:


RSPCA Tasmania Value

Animal care outcomes We care about all living things
Thoughtfulness / politeness We respect each other
Honesty / trustworthiness We act with integrity
Reliability We are accountable
Team work We collaborate to get better outcomes


Nominations should include details (no more than 100 words) of why the contribution by the nominee is an outstanding example of one or more of the values of RSPCA Tasmania.

The CEO Peter West will choose one nomination each month for recognition.

Each nomination will be considered.

Nothing prevents an individual volunteer being nominated or recognised more than once.

Each month, the volunteer selected for recognition will receive a certificate and a gift voucher provided by ANZ Tasmania and will be featured in the next edition of the monthly CEO staff and volunteer newsletter.

Please complete the below form and submit, the form will be emailed directly to Peter West:
