Wellington SPCA hosts birthday parties and other Animal Crew events to raise funds to support the delivery of education services in our community. 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). Although our parties are unique, 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 14 children (due to space and safety limitations).
- $150 for each additional hour should you choose to have a longer party.
- $30 for an additional birthday present, in the event that the party is for more than one child, e.g. an SPCA soft toy, Animal Crew water bottle, Animal Crew drawstring backpack, Animal Crew pin badge and $15 event voucher.
