New Plymouth Centre
Making a difference in North TaranakiVolunteer with us
Our New Plymouth Centre will be closed for adoptions from 24 March, and closed to the public from 25 March until further notice due to the Covid-19 nationwide lockdown.
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.
If you have found a sick or injured animal, contact us immediately on 06 758 2053 or 0800 INSPECTOR(467 732).
If you have found a roaming or dangerous dog, please call the New Plymouth District Council on 06 759 6060.

We list every incoming stray animal on www.lostpet.co.nz so please check the listings to see if we might have your missing pet.
If your animal is not listed, we have some tips on how to find your pet on our Advice & Welfare section.
