Whangarei Leader Pet of the Week


Hi there, I’m Bodene and I am looking for a family home. I’m 9 months old, a medium size german shepherd mix who loves to play. I’ve had some basic training so I know how to sit, lie down and walk nicely on a lead, they tell me I’m well mannered. I think that means I’m a good boy! Favourite things are hanging out with people, going for walks oh and I love to play on the hill with the other dogs, it’s fun.

 So, if you are looking for a friendly family dog come in and ask to meet me, Bodene. See you soon xx

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!
