SPCA's Hastings Centre sits on a greenbelt just south of Hastings Central. The centre was purpose-built and is situated on the junction of Maraekakaho Road and Heathcote Roads. The Centre presents itself from the Heathcote Road entrance. An extensive building, the Hastings Centre has a reasonably large capacity compared to other regional centres with approx. 1,200 animals coming into our care each year.
Over one hectare of land completes the site which allows for expansive lawn areas, small paddocking for exercise areas and is also handy for our larger guests as we do have the odd goat and sheep in for ‘stay overs’.
Modern dog areas include quarantine and adoption units in separate buildings.
All cruelty reports should be made by phone: 06 878 8733
