Rotorua SPCA

"We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves"

RNZSPCA stands for the Royal New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.  We are a voluntary organisation that provides help to animals and owners 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Rotorua SPCA was formed in 1944 and is a branch of the Royal New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.  We currently handle over 3000 unwanted animals per annum in the Rotorua area.

We are purely a voluntary organisation, receiving no state funding whatsoever. We rely on donations, bequests, sponsorships and our own fund-raising efforts.  

At our shelter (24 Old Taupo Road) we have housing available for over one hundred animals at any one time.   It costs us approximately $5 a day to provide food, shelter, warmth, veterinary care and companionship to those animals.

We are kindly supported by our platimun sponsor VETPlus, who provide all the vet services we need for the animals in our care.
