SPCA helps protect vulnerable animals who are sick, injured, lost, abused or simply abandoned. Our 39 SPCA Centres across the country receive over 40,000 animals through their doors and follow up on more than 15,000 animal welfare complaints.

As a charity, we rely almost entirely on the generosity of New Zealanders to carry out our life-saving work, as we receive only a small amount of government funding.

With your help, we can make a difference to thousands of animals. All animal lives matter!

The SPCA (Royal New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Incorporated) is a registered charity under the Charities Act 2005, registration number CC22705. www.spca.nz

More about us

The SPCA (Royal New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is the largest animal welfare charity in New Zealand and the only charity with the power to prosecute in cases of animal cruelty, abandonment and mistreatment.

As a charity, we receive less than 1% of our funding from the government - and this funding is for rural cases only (involving animals on farms). As such, we rely almost entirely on the generosity of the public to carry out our life-saving work.

In November 2017, SPCA centres around the country unified to become a single entity. The key reasons for this change were to better provide a consistently high standard of care and service for the animals, no matter where they are, and to ensure that all SPCA centres are supported through the sharing of resources and skills.

Funds raised in communities fund the work of local centres and also support other SPCA centres that struggle to resource the areas they cover.


Latest update

Now more than ever, vulnerable animals need your support during COVID-19.  9 April 2020

Posted by: SPCA New Zealand

As an Essential Service, SPCA's work will continue during the rest of the lockdown and beyond. We must do all we can to ensure animals do not suffer because of COVID-19. SPCA Inspectors are still protecting animals on the frontline and trying to find ways to safely work and respond to emergency and urgent animal welfare complaints. Our vets are still needed to tend to sick and injured at our centres. Our animal teams must be there to feed, clean, and care for the animals.

COVID-19 has already had a devastating impact on our fundraising. Our best forecasts at this point show that SPCA is looking at a loss of income during the lockdown of $1,000,000. With only a small amount of government funding, this loss of revenue is detrimental to the SPCA to be able to continue to provide our life saving services.

Even in this deeply uncertain time, one thing will not change. The animals need us – and we will be there for them today, tomorrow and beyond COVID-19.

If you can help, please do so by donating to protect New Zealand's animals who need us now more than ever. Together, we can do it.
