The SPCA Auckland hospital is the first stop for all animals that come in to the Village.  Here we provide essential medical care to animals that are sick and injured, as well as routine health checks, vaccinations, microchips and desexing for all companion animals.

Our dedicated hospital team help every animal that comes to SPCA.   

Health checks: Every animal is seen by an SPCA vet when they arrive.  For many animals this can be a simple routine health check, but sadly for those with significant medical issues, getting back to health can involve intensive treatment, long-term care and in some cases emergency life saving surgery.

Vaccinations: All animals are vaccinated before they are put up for adoption.  This helps stop the spread of diseases like cat flu and parvo.    

Microchipping: All companion animals are microchipped and registered on a national database.  Microchipping is one of the best forms of identification and it means if that animal is found, they can easily be reunited with their owners.

Desexing: Thousands of stray animals come to SPCA Auckland each year.  Only desexing will reduce the number of unwanted and neglected animals and reduce the suffering caused as a direct result.  We desex all companion animals before they are put up for adoption.

Life saving surgery: SPCA vets routinely perform life saving surgery for animals that come in to the hospital, working tirelessly to ensure the best outcome for every animal.  

Fostering: We are extremely grateful to our volunteer foster parents who provide temporary homes for animals who are recovering from flu, other illnesses, or surgery.  These animals are given a quiet, loving temporary home to recover before they return to the Village to be put up for adoption.

Help us provide medical care for cats like Jack

When Jack arrived at the SPCA Auckland hospital he was so vulnerable.  Weighing only 270g, he fit in the palm of our nurses hand.  

Within days of arriving, Jack began to show signs of cat flu – something that can be fatal in such a young kitten.   He was given medication and sent to foster care where he stopped eating.  He had to be given special steam baths to help clear his nose, and encourage him to eat
