Swiper & Monkey
|Whangarei Leader Pet of the Week
Monkey & Swiper
In parts of Europe, if a black cat walks into your house or home, you are truly blessed. We think this is was why Friday 13th brought us all of these gorgeous black cats and kittens into the centre ready to bring blessings into your lives.
Meet our gorgeous mother and son duo, Monkey is the mum (lying down on the right), she’s 12 months old and Swiper her son, is 4 months. They are desexed, microchipped, had first vaccination, been treated for worms and fleas.
They are cruisey cats who are great with kids, other cats and ok with dogs. They love to play games with ping pongs balls and snuggle when you talk to them. Come on in and meet them, they’ll be waiting for you.
Thank you so much to Deloraine Cattery, Blair Strang and all of the sponsors, and people who came along, who helped to make the Pet Expo such a great occasion.
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!
