(Royal New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Incorporated

We are New Zealand’s oldest and largest animal welfare charity, with 29 centres and 6 vet partnerships across the country and over 31,000 animals coming through our centres each year. Together with our communities, SPCA has been protecting New Zealand’s animals for over 150 years – animals who are sick, injured, neglected, abused or vulnerable.

SPCA is the only charity with the power to protect all animals including prosecuting people under the Animal Welfare Act 1999.

Our organisation’s founding ethos is ‘to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves’ and we deliver this every day through our vision, values and policies.
