Pet of the Week




Hello, I’m Kya.  I’m a cattle/terrier mix of breeds, a young desexed adult female. I had puppies, but they are now independent and old enough to go to families of their own and it’s my turn.

 I’m looking for a home with someone who will help me to feel safe, someone I can trust will love me forever, someone who will continue with my training, rehabilitation and socializing. I’m a rescue dog who has made a lot of progress, but at times I’m still a bit wary of men. If you take me into your home and give me love and the time to learn to trust I will be your honest and loyal friend forever. My new home needs to be where I can continue to live inside as a part of the family.

 These are a few of my favourite things . . . . sleeping on the couch while you watch tv, playing chase with other dogs, chewing bones outside in the sun, hanging out with my person.

 If you have a quiet home and room in your heart and life for me, come on into the SPCA and ask to meet me, Kya.





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!
