Whangarei Leader Pet of the Week


Hello, I’m Buddy. Actually, we might have met already as I helped collect money Street Appeal in town, at the Warehouse and at Okara Countdown. I was a very busy Buddy and met so many lovely people, and was a very good boy, my tail never stopped wagging.

Anyway, I need home. I’m a 2 year old, german shepherd x desexed male with lovely manners. I get on great with kids and play well with other dogs. I would love to be a part of a family so I can hang out with everyone and go for walks.

Hope to see you soon, love Buddy

Come visit me 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 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, 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!
