|PET OF THE WEEK
Ohhhh it’s a bit chilly out there, I’ve got my scarf on and I’m ready to go. Ani and I are off to the dog park for a play. I do hope I meet some new friends today, fun!!! Sorry, I’m Dolche and I’m waiting down at the SPCA for you to come in and take me home. I’ve grown into being a tall, elegant cattle mix, I’m 7 months old, play well with the other dogs, I know how to sit, lie down, come when I’m called and walk on a lead.
Come visit me at Kioreroa Road, Whangarei or phone (09) 438 9161 in New Zealand
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!
