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.

MAKE SURE YOU'RE PREPARED

Tropical Cyclone Gita is on the way, so now is the time to make sure you and your pet are prepared for an emergency.

With weather reports predicting an intense storm bringing gusts of more than 120km/h, heavy rain, and 8 to 9 metre swells for northern part of the South Island and lower part of the North Island from Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday, it's important to ensure your animals are safe and secure.

Rain and strong winds are also predicted to begin early Tuesday morning prior to the ex-tropical Cyclone coming through.

Consider bringing outdoor animals inside to protect them from risks such as falling debris, high winds, heavy rain and even more serious dangers such as fallen power lines and lightning strikes. Keep them near your family until the bad weather passes.

For any farm animals, ensure they have secure shelter with plenty of access to food and water away from the wind and rain. Keep checking on them when possible!

Find your pet's vaccination book and microchip number information TODAY and put it in a ziplock bag in an easily accessible place, along with a leash/harness or carry cage as appropriate.

Dogs and cats may become agitated if their owner is nervous. Reward calm behavior with small treats and avoid acting differently around your pet during storms. To ease storm anxiety in pets, talk to your veterinarian about medications that can be prescribed to help your pet cope.

If you find a dog who has escaped during a storm, lead them to a secure place and call your local council. They will be able to pick them up and scan for a microchip.

Please stay safe!
