Making a difference in Taupo

Volunteer with us

Under New Zealand’s traffic light system, our Centre is open to the public by appointment, in both red and orange. Please note: Members of the public do not require a vaccine pass for entry to an SPCA Centre. From Tuesday 5 April, in line with the latest Government decision and advice, SPCA has lifted its temporary mandate and vaccine pass requirements.

If you are interested in adopting, fostering or volunteering, please contact us via the website or by phoning us to make an appointment, our team will be able to discuss next steps. In line with Government regulations, physical distancing, face coverings, and contact-tracing measures are required and must be adhered to when appointments take place.

Our Inspectorate teams are an essential service, continuing their work in the community and responding to call-outs, while upholding strict health and safety measures. For any animal welfare concerns or general queries, please contact our Centre for support.

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. Our staff work hard to ensure animals are given a second chance at the life they deserve, in forever homes.

We also run the Snip and Chip cat desexing campaigns in our community, sell items such as Purina pet food; cat and kitten adoption packs; and toys, leads and collars at our Front of House store.

The centre has an Op Shop in the Taupo township which is run almost entirely by wonderful volunteers. Alongside public donations, the Op Shop generates vital funds to finance our Centre’s day-to-day running.
