Making a difference in North Taranaki

Volunteer with us

Under Alert Level 1 our centre can reopen, however, entry will be by appointment only. We ask anyone who would like to come to a centre to enquire about adopting, fostering, or volunteering to contact us first and make an appointment. You can make an appointment by calling our centre on the number provided below. If you are dropping off donations we would love to see you during our opening hours at any time.

The SPCA Centre in New Plymouth, North Taranaki, was established in 1912 and is well supported by the community.

We have three Warranted Animal Welfare Inspectors on our staff who investigate complaints of cruelty and neglect for the whole of the Taranaki Region.

We are extremely fortunate to have the facilities and land (11 acres) to care for a wide range of animals including dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, small animals, birds and livestock. Up to 1600 animals come into our centre each year and they are cared for by our dedicated staff and our team of amazing volunteers.

Our centre has a small retail area which sells pet care products, toys and pet food - almost everything you need for your new adopted family member.
