Making a difference in Gisborne

Volunteer with us

Under New Zealand’s traffic light system, our Centre is open to the public by appointment, in both red and orange. If you are interested in adopting, fostering or volunteering, please contact us via the website or by phoning us to make an appointment. In line with Government regulations, physical distancing, face coverings, and contact-tracing measures are required and must be adhered to when appointments take place. Our Inspectorate teams are an essential service, continuing their work in the community and responding to call-outs, while upholding strict health and safety measures. For any animal welfare concerns or general queries, please contact our Centre for support.

Formed in 1957, the Gisborne SPCA Centre covers a large area of the East Coast, stretching from Wairoa in the south to Hicks Bay in the north.
