Making a difference in the Waikato

Volunteer with us

Under Alert Level 2 our Centre is only open by appointment. We ask anyone who would like to come to the Centre with enquiries about adoptions, fostering and volunteering, to contact us first and make an appointment. You can do so by visiting the relevant page on our website or by calling our Centre on the number provided above. Physical distancing, mask-wearing, and contact tracing measures will be in place.

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.

Specific enquiries

Enquiry types

Due to limited space and resources, unfortunately SPCA does not usually accept owned animals into our care.

As a charity, we do not have sufficient space and resources to provide a rehoming service for owned animals, and have to prioritise sick, stray or injured animals.

If you need to rehome your pet, please click here for advice.
