- Animal Rescue
- Prevent Cruelty
There are thousands of animals around Auckland who find themselves in harm's way each year. These animals need someone to intervene on their behalf, to rescue and care for them, to ensure they can live the life they deserve and to prosecute animal offenders so they don’t hurt animals again.
It is the SPCA’s Inspectorate team who are the first port of call when animals have been in an accident, been the victim of deliberate cruelty, or have been severely neglected or abandoned by their owners.
SPCA Inspectors are on call 7 days a week, 365 days a year ensuring the protection of Auckland’s animals. Our inspectors cover the whole Auckland region from Port Waikato to Wellsford.
The SPCA is the only charity with legal powers to help animals in need. We are authorised under the Animal Welfare Act 1999 to protect all animals from abuse, neglect, and abandonment.
Muffy was rescued by an SPCA Inspector after her owner failed to give her the care she desperately needed.
The fur around Muffy's face had been left to grow and had become so severely matted and crusted with dirt it was hard to tell she was a dog. An extremely painful ulcer developed on her right eye from the fur that constantly rubbed her face and left a permanent scar on her eye. Muffy was in a terrible state of neglect.
