Making a difference in HastingsVolunteer with us
Under the new L2 alert level, we are closed to the general public, but adoptions are continuing to be processed by appointment. As always, you can browse animals available for adoption on our website (just hit the ‘adopt’ button above and apply to adopt them online, or give your local Centre a call to book an appointment. If levels change in the coming days, we will provide further updates.
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.
