News - 11.4.18 SPCA Prosecutes Man for Starving His Three Dogs

Whangarei Leader Pet of the Week


Hello, I’m Bella and I’m a beautiful beardie x 9 month old desexed female.

I’m bouncy, enthusiastic and filled with joy and energy. I have good basic manners, I love people and would be ok in a home with older children and confident cats.

I am looking for an active country home where I will be the only dog as, though I play well with most dogs, at home I like to be the only one so I don’t have to share your attention.  

I only have 3 legs as, when I came into the SPCA, I had a leg that was too badly damaged to be fixed. Having 3 legs doesn’t really slow me down, though I do need someone who will work with me and help me continue with my training so I can grow into the beautiful loyal friend and companion I have the potential to be.


Come visit us at Kioreroa Road, Whangarei or phone (09)4389161 (NZ)

Thank You so much to our Major Sponsors!



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 ReSort 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!
