• Adoption Info

    We try to find the best match between our homeless animals and their new owners. We operate a no "time limit" policy for all the animals we have available for adoption - we will care for them until we find the very best home for them.

    Our goal is to give people the knowledge and resources necessary to care for animals and prevent cruelty to them. We endeavour to build empathy in children and adults, towards people and animals.

We need you to join our fantastic team at the SPCA
Volunteers are a vital part of the every SPCA.
Without their dedication and commitment we wouldn’t be able to carry out the work we do.  In North Taranaki this involves providing care and rehabilitation for up to 2000 animals every year.
The SPCA is a very rewarding place for animal lovers. You can help with the daily work of caring for our animals, walking our dogs, or simply sitting quietly and stroking a timid cat or kitten.
The volunteer work involves a range of duties such as:
* Cleaning cages
* Feeding the animals
* Caring for the animals
* Walking dogs
* Taking care of small animals - guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens and birds
* Fostering animals
* Fundraising
What you will gain from the SPCA:
* An increased knowledge of animal
* An opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of animals
* Become part of a great team of like minded people
We need help every day of the year – your help for a few hours even once a fortnight is valuable – the busiest time is from 8am – 10am each morning we also need help at lunchtime and mid afternoon.
If you are keen we would love to hear from you – contact the SPCA on 06-7582053 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
*Volunteers need to be aged 16 years or older
