We DESPERATELY need more volunteers in our SPCA Op Shops

The Team from SPCA - Wellington Centre

Our SPCA Op Shops in Johnsonville, Petone and Lower Hutt all play an important role in the community, raising the vital funds needed to help us rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals in need. But our Op Shops are running REALLY LOW on volunteers, and with Christmas fast approaching, we really need more hands on deck to ensure we can always be there for the animals who need us in the Wellington region.

If you have a passion for retail, want to work in a friendly environment and grow your skills, all while making a difference for animals, then please consider volunteering with us. We would love to have you on board!

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Poppi has found a new home courtesy of the SPCA.
"Poppi is having an amazing life with my partner and I, and her older brother in the Hutt Valley! Every night she sleeps on our bed curled up with her big brother Milo. Milo and Poppi are inseparable. They spend 100 per cent of their time together, whether its playing in the garden or cuddling together at night. She is a very happy and well treasured kid!"

Keep your dog on a lead to protect native birds

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

"We have noticed that many of our native birds are currently nesting in some of our parks and reserves! This is just a little reminder to make sure your kurī are on leads in our parks and reserves where required so that we can keep our beautiful native birds safe.
