Latest Whangarei SPCA News - SPCA's response to the Government's National Dog Plan
Hello. Remember me? I'm Cassie and I'm still waiting for you to come and take me home.
Are you an active person, living in town and looking for a family friend and companion, a buddy to go with you as you walk The Loop? Well, I’m Cassie and I’m waiting to meet you. I am a cattle x desexed female, 3 – 4 years old. I have great manners, get on well with other dogs and walk well on a lead. Come on in and say that you’ve come to meet Cassie. Looking for a home without cats.
Dogs in Cars
On a hot day, the temperature inside your car can reach 39°C in 10 minutes. Even in the shade with the windows down, the temperature can rise to a deadly 49°C in 30 minutes. Your dog’s natural cooling process is ineffective in these conditions.
Dogs overheat much more quickly than humans as they cannot sweat like we can, but instead they pant to dissipate heat and cool their body temperature. This is near impossible to do when the air in their immediate environment is thick and hot, as it is in a hot car. Your dog’s normal body temperature is about 38.5°C. Their body can withstand a higher temperature for only a short amount of time before irreversible damage is done.
Come visit me at Kioreroa Road, Whangarei or phone (09)4389161 (NZ)
Thank You so much to our Major Sponsors!
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, to Waiomio south of Kawakawa, then back across to the east coast (to just north of Whangaruru North).
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!
