|Whangarei Leader Pet of the Week
Meet Nixon, mastiff x desexed male, 10 months old. He’s a sweetheart of a dog who is looking for a kind home with someone who has had bigger dogs before, someone who will continue his training. He learns quickly and enjoys his lessons. He loves cuddles, being with you, going for walks and has good basic manners. Nixon needs a mature home or a family with teenage children, he thinks that cats are a bit scary and gets on with other dogs.

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!
