Making a difference in Whangarei

Volunteer with us

Under New Zealand’s Orange traffic light system, our Centres are open to the public, however appointments must be made for adoption enquiries, foster appointments and volunteering interest. Please note that members of the public do not require a vaccine pass for entry to an SPCA Centre.

If you are interested in adopting, fostering or volunteering, please contact us via the website or by phoning us to make an appointment, our team will be able to discuss next steps. In line with Government regulations, physical distancing and face coverings measures are still required and must be adhered to when entering our workplaces. If you have a face mask exemption, please bring it with you.

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.
