Making a difference in TaupoVolunteer with us
SPCA's Taupo Centre at Centennial Drive was opened in 2010 and takes care of animals in need throughout the Taupo district 365 days a year.
Annually, over 700 animals come through our doors and last year our Taupo animal welfare inspector investigated over 180 animal cruelty complaints in Taupo, Turangi and Tokoroa.
Our staff work hard to ensure animals are given a second chance at the life they deserve, in forever homes.
We offer education on responsible pet ownership, animal care and preventing animal cruelty within the community.
We also run desexing campaign in our community, offer microchipping for $30 and sell items such as Purina pet food; flea, tick and worm products; and toys, leads and collars at our Front of House store.
The centre has an opshop in the Taupo township which is run almost entirely by wonderful volunteers. Alongside public donations, the Opshop generates vital funds to finance our centre’s day to day running.
