SPCA New Zealand is proud to announce an exciting new relationship with Nestlé Purina PetCare. Now the principal cat and dog food partner of SPCA, Purina will be providing meals for as many as 50,000 animals that will go through the 46 SPCA centres around the country annually.
Purina will be supplying over 80,000kgs of canned and dry cat and dog food annually, along with financial support.
Chief Executive Officer of SPCA New Zealand, Ric Odom, says “feeding all of the animals in our care is an enormous daily task and costs a great deal of money. We simply could not achieve what we do without the considerable efforts and support of partners such as Purina.”

When it comes to generosity, Kiwis are digging deep when it comes to animals. Generous Kiwis donated more than $74,000 to Animates’ annual Giving Tree Appeal, up by a third on the previous year. The funds raised mean the Mobility Dogs Assistance Trust will be able to help more Kiwis with physical disabilities get the support they deserve, and will allow the SPCA to rescue more animals in need.
Jacqui Baigent, Animates’ National Manager of Brands and Partnerships is grateful for the continued support from pet lovers nationwide, who have once again dug deep to help the Mobility Dogs Assistance Trust and the SPCA.
“We are so appreciative of our wonderful customers for their significant donations to these deserving charities which are so close to our hearts,” said Jacqui.
