Making a difference in TaupoVolunteer with us
Under Alert Level 2 our Centre is only open by appointment. We ask anyone who would like to come to the Centre with enquiries about adoptions, fostering and volunteering, to contact us first and make an appointment. You can do so by visiting the relevant page on our website or by calling our Centre on the number provided above. Physical distancing, mask-wearing, and contact tracing measures will be in place.
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.
