Kit­tens are here! We are slowly start­ing to get a flow of kit­tens in adop­tion now. We cur­rently have 80 kit­tens of all ages and weights in our care, all be­ing loved and cared for un­til they are old enough to be de-sexed and avail­able. If you are think­ing of adopt­ing a kit­ten make the SPCA your first choice. Our adop­tion fee is $115, each kit­ten is vet checked, had a flea and worm treat­ment, a vac­ci­na­tion, de-sexed, mi­cro-chipped and is reg­is­tered on the NZ Com­pan­ion An­i­mal Reg­is­ter.

Al­though we love you to adopt any of our an­i­mals, please don’t think about adopt­ing one as a gift for some­one. We will not adopt you an an­i­mal if that per­son has not come in and met it first— it­may be an un­wanted pet!

Please make sure the per­son meets the an­i­mal first and can choose for them­selves. We can do vouch­ers for the cost of an adop­tion, so you can give the voucher as a present — still a sur­prise, but that per­son can come in when they are ready and choose the an­i­mal that suits them. We like to think an­i­mals pick their own­ers.

The Tau­ranga SPCA will be closed to the pub­lic only on De­cem­ber 25-26 and Jan­uary 1-2. Please call us on 578 0245 for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion or any an­i­mal wel­fare con­cerns.
