Making a difference in Wellington

Volunteer with us

Our Wellington Centre will be closed for adoptions from 24 March, and closed to the public from 25 March until further notice due to the Covid-19 nationwide lockdown.

SPCA has been in Wellington over 130 years and now has pride of place in the old Fever Hospital in the Green belt in Newtown on Mount Victoria.

The Fever Hospital was originally opened in 1919 for human patients and was open just before Christmas 2013 just for animals.

As well as space for animals to be rehomed, SPCA’s Wellington Centre, known as the Margaret Doucas Animal Hospital, has a full veterinary hospital providing care for the animals in the community as well as those in SPCA care.

With a focus on community engagement and proactive solutions to animal needs, there is also the opportunity to hire areas of the Centre for functions and events.
