SPCA Waihi Branch

On May 07 2014 the Waihi branch of the RNZSPCA was amalgamated into the Tauranga branch. This means that the Tauranga SPCA now manages and cares for the animals within the Waihi area, alongside the amazing volunteers that help at the Waihi shelter and the Waihi Op Shop.

Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with our shelter news and see what amazing animals we have waiting here for their forever homes.

We are committed to a well managed entry of animals to our shelter. Furthermore we are doing more to help people in the community retain their pets by way of helping with food, de-sexing, and flea/worm treatment. To note only 90 cats/kittens were admitted into our care in 2015. The number of animals and families that we have assisted in the community is countless.


The Waihi SPCA is also a community-based charity, which receives no government funding. It depends heavily on donations from the public and fundraising to support its services.

Donations made to the Waihi SPCA will assist the operation of the local animal shelter, support the work of the inspectorate, provide community education on animal welfare issues and help the SPCA to bring about improvements in animal welfare education.

Personal and community support is vital to the success of the capital fundraising drive for our SPCA. We ask you to consider supporting us and share in our investment to assure continued support for the many animals that come under our care.

Waihi SPCA Volunteers

We have a wonderful group of volunteers who are dedicated and passionate about the shelter, the animals and the time they give. Many of our volunteers continue to return year after year. Our volunteers are always willing to help with anything asked of them, going above and beyond their duties. Volunteers are very hard to come by in a small town so the ones we have are as precious as the gold found in Waihi.

If you live in or around the Waihi area and would like to volunteer for the SPCA, please give us a call.
