Making a difference in the Waikato

Volunteer with us

Under Alert Level 1 our centre is open, however, enquiries about adoptions, fostering and volunteering are by appointment. We ask anyone who would like to come to a centre to contact us first and make an appointment. You can do so by calling our centre on the number provided above. If you are dropping off donations we would love to see you during our opening hours at any time.

SPCA's Hamilton Centre (formerly Waikato SPCA) is located in Te Rapa, owned by the very supportive Waikato Animal Welfare Foundation.

We assist with sick or injured stray animals and our animal welfare inspectors attend possible breaches of the Animal Welfare Act.

We are open six days a week for adoptions between 10.30am and 2.30pm.
