|Whangarei Leader Pet of the Week
Hello, I’m Champ (standing in for Missy who has gone home) and I’m here to say a huge Thank You to all the volunteers, people and businesses who have donated, helped and supported the Whangarei SPCA throughout 2014. We couldn’t have managed without you! The centre will only be open normal business hours throughout the holiday period but we have an inspector on call for complaints of cruelty and neglect or animal emergencies 24/7.
From the staff and animals at Whangarei SPCA Merry Christmas, we will see you all back here in the New Year.
ps If you're looking for a feline friend come on into the centre, our cattery is full of cats and kittens waiting to meet you.
If you can, please drop a tin of kitten or puppy food into the boxes at the supermarkets or pop into the SPCA and put in under our Christmas tree, we need your help to feed the animals this Christmas.
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!
