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 3 animal welfare Inspectors attend possible breaches of the Animal Welfare Act.
We are open 6 days a week for adoptions between 10.30 and 2.30pm.
All cruelty reports should be made by phone: 07 847 4868
If you have an animal welfare complaint, please call our team on 07 847 4868. Our team will be on call 9am-9pm, Monday – Friday (excluding public holidays) and 10.30am - 2.30pm Saturday. If you have an animal emergency outside of these hours, please contact your nearest after-hours vet clinic. For any problems with stray, found or lost dogs, please contact the local council. Please contact the local police for any instances where an animal or person/s welfare is at immediate risk.
