SPCA New Zealand

Find your perfect pet

Under Alert Level 1, animals can be adopted from your local SPCA Centre. All adoptions will be online with our centres re-opening by appointment only for adoption pick-ups.

  1. To enquire about an animal, click the ‘Questions about me’ button on their profile and fill in the form with as much detail as you can. Alternatively, call the centre where the animals are located.
  2. Our team will be in touch to help you choose the pet that’s right for your family – it might not be the one you enquired about after all. They will discuss your lifestyle, experience and what you’re looking for. Phone interviews and photos will be used to find an animal that is right for you and your lifestyle. There may be delays depending on the level of interest in adoptions that the centre is experiencing.
  3. If we find a suitable match, the team will email through an adoption form and a link to the adoption fee payment page. Alternatively, there will be an option to pay on pick up at some centres.
  4. Once payment is received, the SPCA team will be in touch to arrange a date and time for an appointment for pick-up of the animal from the centre.

Update: We have received a high number of adoption enquiries since our adoptions reopened and our team are working as quick as they can to get back to you. Please bear with us as we navigate adoptions using our new online process. We appreciate your patience and support during this time - thank you for looking to adopt an animal in need

New animals come and go every day so not every animal is profiled here. Sometimes an animal profiled has already found a new home and we haven't had a chance yet to take them off the website. We recommend you contact the relevant centre to check they are still available prior to visiting. We also don't usually profile individual kittens as their availability changes daily - instead we use a generic profile to indicate that a centre has kittens available for adoption.
