Volunteer for SPCA National Support Office

We are currently looking for reliable, long term volunteers to assist us in achieving our goal of "Delivering the Best World for Our Animals".

The SPCA National Support Office provides assistance to our 47 SPCA Centres throughout New Zealand.

Under the Animal Welfare Act 1999, SPCA National Support Office is the only organisation in New Zealand with the status of being an approved organisation. This status provides the process by which all of the SPCAs Inspectors are appointed, and through Performance and Technical Standards set by Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), the SPCA National Support Office is responsible for the performance of SPCA Inspectors.

We also coordinate national fundraising events like 'Cupcake Day', SPCA education programmes like 'One of the Family' and run the national 'Blue Tick' accreditation scheme for farm animals.

We are located in New Lynn, Auckland and are open Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm. Our office is administration-based and volunteer duties may include basic administrative tasks, data entry work, project work, events work and other tasks as they arise.

Please note that the SPCA National Support Office does not have any field work or work that directly involves contact with animals available but there are however lots of animals in the office so volunteers would need to be ok with doggie cuddles. If you are interested in hands on animal work, we suggest you contact your local SPCA Centre.

If you would like to get involved, please download and complete the Volunteer Work Application Form and send it to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Please note we have limited vacancies and may not be able to offer spaces to all those who apply.

SPCA Op Shops

Pick up a great bargain and help your local SPCA at the same time. A number of SPCAs across the country have set up op shops, and encourage their communities to come along, have a browse and find a pre-loved treasure or two to take home. All money raised through sales of items at your SPCA's op shop goes to help your SPCA carry out their life-saving work in your community.

Regular Giving

Regular Giving is a way that you can really make a difference to the Royal New Zealand SPCA. Giving through a regular automated payment, direct debit or credit card payment saves the Royal New Zealand SPCA money as it cuts our administration costs.  Direct Debit in particular saves time and paperwork, both for us and for you!
