|PET OF THE WEEK
“I haz a joke for you . . . . ‘What’s a cat’s favourite movie? The Sound of Mewsic.’ Hello, I’m Ricki and I’m your Pet of the Week! In my ideal home (what I dream about), there is a family with older children who will rub my tummy, feed me yummy food and give me beds to sleep on. I love to smooch and purr and be with you, I’m a bit of a companionable cat. I am 7 years old, a desexed male and I’m microchipped and vaccinated and ready to go home when you come. Luv Ricki. “Thank you so much to Colin and Jean Sanders for opening their beautiful garden, Nymet, for the Whangarei SPCA. Thank you also to our amazing volunteers who helped to make the Open Garden Weekend such a success. Over the 2 days we had 374 people come through and raised $2800 for the animals.
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!
