Stella and Laika


Laika and Stella

Hey, wait for me Laika! I want to play with the toy too!

Hi everyone. I’m Stella and that’s my sister Laika in front with the toy (that she’s not sharing!). We are 4 ½ months old, mastiff/cattle mix so we will grow quite big and have plenty of energy. We need homes with people who will help us grow in confidence, quiet stable family homes would be perfect. We like children who are gentle, other dogs are fun to play with but cats . . . . ohhhh they are scary! We know how to sit and lie down when we are asked to and we are learning how to walk on leads. Come on down to the SPCA and meet us, fall in love and take one of us home. Gotta go . . . . . .

Laika!!! It’s my turn with the toy now!

The Whangarei SPCA at a glance

Our centre is open 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 3pm. We are located at 143 Kioreroa Road, next to the Re:Sort centre and Cowleys Party Hire.

The Whangarei SPCA inspectorate covers an area from the Brynderwyns across to the Kaipara Harbour, up through Dargaville to just south of Kaikohe, then back across to the east coast (just south of Cape Brett).

Around 3000 animals are brought to our centre annually, and each year we investigate around 900 animal abuse complaints. Our Inspectors are on call 24/7 for investigation of animal cruelty and neglect and accidents & emergencies.

We receive a small amount of funding from the Government towards welfare investigations, but no financial help from Whangarei District Council, the Northland Regional Council and are not eligible for Lotteries Grants

We could not exist without volunteers and donations from the public!
