Whether they have just arrived, are currently undergoing medical treatment, or are waiting to be adopted, every animal receives optimal care. At our SPCA centres our staff and volunteers work to ensure that every animal is well cared for on their journey to finding a home.
Every animal enjoys many different forms of stimulation while in the care of the SPCA. This includes training, socialisation and enrichment such as having toys to play with, indoor and outdoor time, as well as positive human interaction.
Matching the right home and person with the right animal is essential. A person’s lifestyle, property and experience with animals are all important factors that are considered before an adoption is approved. Our animal team, of staff and volunteers, work hard to ensure every animal finds the best new home for their needs.
Adopting a new family member is a big decision because it is a commitment to care for that animal for the rest of its life. Before adopting we recommend reading through our 'how to adopt' page. Click here to view animals for adoption.
Mezza was a cat that was rescued earlier this year by a Wellington SPCA Inspector. She had been found hiding under someone’s house with a mummified, infected leg.
After treatment from our vet team, which resulted in her leg being removed, Mezza was rehabilitated at our centre and was soon ready for adoption. This friendly, affectionate and very purry cat quickly found a new home with a loving family who renamed her Grace.
Grace is now enjoying her new life with her adopted family. Regular meals, a warm place to sleep and lots of love and cuddles – Grace has a very different life from when we found her alone, suffering and very frightened.
It is thanks to supporters like you that Grace was able to be rescued, treated and given the best care. Ultimately, she was found a new home where she could live a happy, healthy life on her now three paws. Donate today to help animals in need like Mezza.
