SPCA adoptions resume

Posted April 29, 2020

Now that New Zealand is at Level 3 SPCA animal adoptions are able to resume.

SPCA CEO Andrea Midgen says I hope you’ll agree this is fantastic news that we now have the ability to find the animals in our care forever homes.

SPCA centres will remain closed to the public. Donated goods are still unable to be accepted because of the strict health and safety measures.Adoptions will be carried out via contactless methods.

“We will be listing our animals for adoption on our website. Enquiries can be made by clicking the ‘questions about me’ button on an animals’ profile and then filling out the form, or by calling the centre.
Once an enquiry has been made, contact will be made by the centre where the animal is located to discuss the next steps.”

SPCA op shops remain closed to the public and are unable to receive donations.

Volunteer applications will also remain closed at this stage.

SPCA inspectors, ambulance drivers, and field officers will continue their work in the community responding to urgent and emergency call outs.

“I want to reassure you that, just like during the lockdown, SPCA will continue to care for animals in our centres and in our communties during Level 3,” Andrea Midgen says.

“Unfortunately, because we are not yet able to open our centres to the public we would like to send out a reminder to not leave unwanted animals at our centres unattended. We understand this is a difficult time for everyone, but if you find you can no longer care for your animal, or find a lost or stray animal, please do call your local SPCA centre first so we can discuss possible solutions with you.”

“We’ve been incredibly touched by your ongoing support. We know the last month hasn’t been a easy time for anyone - but your kind messages and phone calls, generous donations, and ability to continue to look out for animals in our communities has been unwavering. I can’t thank you enough for being there for the animals.”
