SPCA Tauranga

Caring for neglected and abandoned animals

SPCA Tauranga has an important role to play in the local community, and our operation would not be possible without your support. Without you, we could not operate and help the animals that so desperately need it, or bring justice to those who have failed these innocent animals.

Our inspectors work to uphold the laws relating to the treatment of animals and make prosecutions where necessary. At our Betty Napier Animal Shelter we give sanctuary to animals in distress and re-home suitable animals where possible.

Saving Lives Philosophy

We have been operating our shelter for some time using the ‘Saving Lives’ philosophy, as we believe all life is precious. The mission behind ‘Saving Lives’ is to treat every animal that arrives on our property as if it were our own, and to make every decision a life-saving commitment.

We no longer euthanise an animal because it has been in adoption for a certain time or because we have no space. Once we commit to finding a loving home for an animal we will see it through until we find it one.

Jytte AndersonOh I would so love to help out,but last time I volunteered was for few weeks, it broke my heart, loved having cuddles with them at the same time wanted to take them all home, I already had seven cats to care for. They had coming knocking at the door and stayed. It so upset me that people could just dump there animals like this. And I applaud you and your volunteers that do this.
