Making a difference in South TaranakiVolunteer with us
Please note the Hawera Centre is now operating as an animal care centre only and is closed to the public.
From June 2019 SPCA’s Hawera Centre will no longer be open for adoptions.
For animal welfare concerns in the area, please contact 0800 INSPECTOR.
For adoptions, please consider adopting an animal in need from one of our neighbouring SPCA Centres.
If you need urgent assistance for an injured animal currently in your possession, please call us on 0800 INSPECTOR (467 732).
Animals in our Hawera Centre are cared for by one full-time staff member and a small team of great volunteers. Warranted Animal Welfare Inspectors are based at the nearby New Plymouth Centre.
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.
