Making a difference in Whangarei

Volunteer with us

Our Whangarei Centre is now closed to the public until further notice due to the Covid-19 nationwide lockdown.

The SPCA inspectorate based in Whangarei covers an area from the Brynderwyns across to the Kaipara Harbour, up through Dargaville to just south of Kaikohe, to Waiomio south of Kawakawa, then back across to the east coast (to just north of Whangaruru North). Around 3,000 animals are brought to our centre annually, and each year we investigate around 900 animal abuse complaints.
