Making a difference in the Far NorthVolunteer with us
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.
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.
