SPCA's Kawerau Centre is a small centre located in the Eastern Bay of Plenty and run entirely by a group of committed volunteers.
We provide an invaluable service to the people and animals of Kawerau District.
In 2017, the Kawerau Centre received 537 sick, injured, abused or simply abandoned animals into our care.
In addition to the centre we have a great SPCA Op shop in Liverpool Street in Kawerau. It raises vital funds for the work we do and is also run entirely by volunteers.
All cruelty reports should be made by phone: 07 323 4032 (press option 3)
If you have an animal welfare complaint, please call our team on 07 323 4032 and press option 3. 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.
