Making a difference in North Taranaki

Volunteer with us

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

The Animal Welfare Inspector team 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. All animals that come into our centre each year 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.
