Making a difference in the Central Hawkes Bay

Volunteer with us

Under New Zealand’s traffic light system, our Centre is open to the public by appointment, in both red and orange. If you are interested in adopting, fostering or volunteering, please contact us via the website or by phoning us to make an appointment. 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.

The Waipukurau Centre (previously Central Hawkes Bay SPCA) was founded 1989 and has been located at its current site since 1993.

Our inspector deals with approximately 100 welfare calls a year and the centre looks after around 300 incoming animals annually.

Much of our local income comes from our op shop which is run entirely by volunteers. We are also well supported by a handful of local business sponsors and some regular donors in our local community – support that makes all the difference to the animals.

The Waipukurau Centre serves generally Central Hawkes Bay from Te Aute in the north to Takapau in the south, from the Ruahines in the west to the coast in the east. This includes the settlements of Onga Onga, Tikokino and Porangahau and the larger centres of Waipukurau, Waipawa and Otane.
