|PET OF THE WEEK
‘So, are you ready to go for a walk, and throw a stick and then we could play with my toys and then after that, we could go for another walk maybe?
Hello, I’m Luca and I’m a Jack Russell x and I’m desexed female. I’m only 6 months old so I’ve got loads of energy and like to play games and go for walks. I’d like to be inside with you cos I love company, and I’d get bored quick if I was outside on my own. I would be best suited to a home with older children who could play games with me, another dog would be ok so long as we get along when we meet.’
Just a reminder with the warmer weather it’s too hot to safely leave your dog in the car. Even with the windows open it only takes a few minutes for the temperature to start rising, not long for the dog to become distressed, heat exhausted and they can die. If you are travelling and have to take your dog and stop somewhere, put them on a lead and take them out of the car into the shade. If you are worried about a dog in a car please don’t hesitate to give us a call on 4389161
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!
