|PET OF THE WEEK
‘Hello, are you there? Oh yes, there you are. Hello, pleased to meet you, I’m Yoda. I’m about 5 months old, medium sized mixbreed male (but I’ve been desexed). I love people, all people . . . . little people, big people, young people and not so young people. It’s good fun down here at the SPCA, I have somewhere warm to sleep, I get fed every day (more than once yay!), I get to go for walks, play with the other dogs and learn new things but, I don’t have a family. And that’s what I want more than anything else, a family of my own. Are you my new family? . . . . . luv Yoda 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, 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!
