Making a difference in WestportVolunteer with us
Under Alert Level 1 our centre is open, however, enquiries about adoptions, fostering and volunteering are by appointment. We ask anyone who would like to come to a centre to contact us first and make an appointment. You can do so by calling our centre on the number provided above. If you are dropping off donations we would love to see you during our opening hours at any time.
The SPCA Centre in Westport (previously SPCA Buller) has a tight-knit team who work mainly with cats and kittens.
Dogs and puppies tend to go to Greymouth or other SPCA Centres to be cared for.
We also have boarding facilities that can take up to 15 cats at a time, and a wonderful op shop on the main street.
If you have found a sick or injured animal, contact us immediately on 03 789 7520.
If you have found a roaming or dangerous dog, please call the Buller District Council on 03 788 9111.
If the animal is healthy and not in danger, please click here to see how you can help.
We list every incoming stray animal on www.lostpet.co.nz so please check the listings to see if we might have your missing pet.
If your animal is not listed, we have some tips on how to find your pet on our Advice & Welfare section.
