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 Needs Your Help To Prosecute Animal Cruelty Cases. Join our Fight Fund here.

The RNZSPCA is the only non-governmental organisation in New Zealand that is entrusted with the enforcement responsibilities relating to the Animal Welfare Act of 1999. Of more than 11,000 complaints received by SPCA centres throughout New Zealand each year, we undertake prosecutions for cases of national importance.

We also assist our smaller centres to conduct a growing number of prosecutions and we facilitate this via our relationship with The Crown Prosecutor. We do not have government funding to support this process.

Depending on the complexity of such cases, the costs can reach many thousands of dollars. Extreme cases can take up to six years in proceedings and can cost up to $50,000. These are not just legal fees and court costs. It also costs to collect and prepare evidence, and relocate, rehabilitate and re home any animals that may survive in these atrocious cases.

The RNZSPCA Fight Fund has been established to help cover such costs for any of our 47 SPCA centres as needed. On occasions some cases have been impeded or failed to be prosecuted due to lack of local funds. We need to resolve this as it is absolutely vital that these offenders are prevented from continuing to abuse animals. The Fight Fund is about having the needed funds available at short notice as is typically the case in order that prompt action can be taken. To expose and prosecute these sorts of cases, please help us build this fund urgently by donating now.

Thank you.

Under the Animal Welfare Act 1999 the SPCA has the power to protect all animals from abuse, neglect, and abandonment.

Why do we prosecute some people and not others? Wherever possible we offer advice and assistance to improve animal welfare, and this sometimes means giving people time to make improvements. This is not always possible or appropriate. For example, if there has been a deliberate act of violence against an animal, when people won't accept assistance, or in extreme cases of neglect.

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.

Bequests

A bequest or legacy is a sum of money, items of property or possessions left in your will to another person, group, organisation or charity. If you would like to accomplish some good beyond your lifetime for animals in distress, the best way to do this is to make financial provision in your will to continue the work of the SPCA.
