The SPCA voted on June 17 to formone national organisation from its current 45 independent centres. Delegates voted at the RNZSPCA annual general meeting. The move would create a unified and future-focused national entity after two years of discussions and consultation. Acting chief executive Andrea Midgen said the previous structure was not sustainable or fit-for-purpose. Midgen said the move to one SPCA was not about creating a centrally-controlled organisation, or closing any SPCA centres.
