Making a difference in the Far North

Volunteer with us

Under New Zealand’s traffic light system, our Centre is open to the public by appointment, in both red and orange. Please note: Members of the public do not require a vaccine pass for entry to an SPCA Centre. From Tuesday 5 April, in line with the latest Government decision and advice, SPCA has lifted its temporary mandate and vaccine pass requirements.

If you are interested in adopting, fostering or volunteering, please contact us via the website or by phoning us to make an appointment, our team will be able to discuss next steps. In line with Government regulations, physical distancing, face coverings, and contact-tracing measures are required and must be adhered to when appointments take place.

Our Inspectorate teams are an essential service, continuing their work in the community and responding to call-outs, while upholding strict health and safety measures. For any animal welfare concerns or general queries, please contact our Centre for support.

SPCA's Kerikeri Centre and its sister facility, the Kaitaia Centre work hard to ensure that animals in the Far North region are being well cared for and are in good health.

We educate people on how to look after animals properly, and how to treat them with love and respect.

To prevent cruelty to our animals, we have two dedicated Animal Welfare Inspectors who look after the vast area we cover – from the Kaihu on the West Coast to Russell on the East Coast and everything North, to the Cape.

Established by SPCA with community assistance and local management, we have grown from a tiny settlement, to a significant presence caring for the animals in our community.

Without the generous legacies, and continued community support we would not exist.

In December 2016, using a bequest from Mr Tom Baker, and help from the Auckland SPCA Centre we were for the first time purchase an existing kennels, and buildings to house all of our animals, staff and volunteers in a home we can all call our own.
