I'm not very knowledgable on anything to do with animal care but I can give you some other suggestions for volunteering. Although my suggestion is within school, I think a good way to help out the community is through the school representative council (SRC) if you have one. SRC's usually end up running the fundraising events in schools which collect substantial amounts of money to use on both the school community and the general public (e.g. for homeless people). I'm sure that through this you may be able to find an issue you're passionate about in regards to animals and perhaps others within the council may help you start up a fundraiser for that said issue if you address it well to the whole group. Just a thought

if you're over 16 u can volunteer at vinnies, im pretty sure u can get involved w helping out refugee families. also call your local animal shelter to see if they need any volunteers- a good idea would be to raise money for them at your school and buy toys etc if you can't volunteer. getting e12 isn't that hard just be consistent with what you do and do a variety including getting involved in your SRC or debate or sporting clubs

When you turn 18 donating blood/plasma is a good thing to do.

It used to be 16 but seems they have changed it.
