Motueka Vet Partnership
Making a difference in MotuekaVolunteer with us
We don’t have a full animal centre in Motueka but to make sure we are able to help local animals, an SPCA cat holding facility is available through Vet Centre Motueka.
SPCA kitten adoptions are also offered directly through The Vet Centre and we work closely with our sister facility, the Nelson SPCA Centre.
All cruelty reports should be made by phone: 03 547 7171
If you have a welfare complaint about a companion animal, please call our team on 03 547 7171 and press option 3. If you have an animal emergency outside of vet opening hours, please contact your nearest after-hours vet clinic.
If your animal welfare complaint is regarding livestock or paddock animals, these will be handled by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) from Monday 20 February. Please call them directly on 0800 00 83 33. Read more about this new model for handling complaints here.
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.
Do not email or Facebook us to report emergencies.
