About our Birthday Parties
Host your special celebration with us at our Wellington Centre! We do birthdays for both the young and young at heart! Our awesome birthdays are jam-packed with fun activities and are a perfect way for groups to interact with some of our very special animals.
Children’s parties are available for children turning seven years and older, and for groups of up to 12 children and 4 adults. Parties include room hire, birthday gifts, party favours, birthday invitations, room decoration, and SPCA facilitated activities.
Adult parties can be designed around your needs and group size.
Please note: Saturday 19th December is the last day for party bookings in 2020. The first date for party bookings in 2021 is Saturday 30th January.
We are unable to provide birthday parties during the middle weekend of the school holiday, as we will be hosting our School Holiday Programmes.

The three parties offered are:
- Purrr-thday Time for those who love kittens and cats
- Paw-ty Time for those who love puppies and dogs
- Party Animals! for those who love all animals and just can’t choose!
Note that even though activities for the Purrr-thday and Paw-ty Time parties are focused on one species, this does not mean that they won’t get to see other species of animals too.
All parties include the following:
- Creation of an enrichment toy/activity for an animal
- Activity related to the animal species of choice
- Time with the centre animals
- Game/s with an animal theme
- 30 minutes at the end for the sharing of food and opening of presents

The SPCA Wellington centre hosts birthday parties to raise funds to support our work with animals. The price charged for parties ensures we cover building, supply and staff costs with a small margin left for profit (this being the fundraising component). Our parties are unique and the price charged is comparable with other party services offered in the region.
- $330 for a 2 hour party – we allow 20 minutes either side of start time for pack-in, pack-out, and this includes up to 12 children (due to space and safety limitations).
- $150 for each additional hour should you choose to have a longer party.
- $20 for an additional birthday present, in the event that the party is for more than one child, e.g. an Animal Crew water bottle and Animal Crew sprout cube.
