Staff at the Animal Village in Westney Road, Mangere come from diverse backgrounds and have a wide range of experience with animals. Our vet teams, Hospital staff and animal attendants work to rehabilitate and re-home the animals that come into the SPCA. Our Inspectors rescue animals in distress, educate the public, and enforce the Animal Welfare Act where needed.
Our fundraising, administration and retail staff work with the public, suppliers and sponsors to raise desperately needed funds. And our Op Shop managers each work with dedicated volunteers to raise further funds for the animals.
Volunteers are a crucial part of SPCA Auckland. Over 2,527 volunteers donated over 37,733 hours of their time to help Auckland's animals in need.
SPCA Auckland CEO Andrea Midgen feels extremely privileged to head Auckland’s leading animal welfare agency and will continue to build on the strong reputation and sustainability of the organisation.
