Our passion for pets means helping to make a difference for those that need it the most.
We are very proud to be working with SPCA to help feed a better future for pets. At Purina we believe pets and people are better together and are guided by a passion for pets. That’s why we are proud to be donating over 80,000 kg of pet food each year to feed the cats and dogs of SPCA. #feedingabetterfuture.
We are dedicated to assisting in the rehabilitation and re-homing of rescue pets throughout New Zealand. Purina is proud to support a range of leading pet welfare organisations and charities that share our values, in a variety of ways – supporting those who dedicate their lives to improving the life of domestic pets, as well as organisations promoting pets as practical and therapeutic companions for humans.
Every shelter pet deserves a second chance at life. Through adoption, our four-legged friends are able to leave their pasts of neglect and abandonment behind them and become beloved family members and lifelong companions.
ADOPT A PET
Welcoming an SPCA pet into your home not only saves their life, but it also creates a space at the SPCA for a new pet that needs a home. The SPCA ensure all animals are healthy and prepared for their new home prior to adoption.Interested? Click below to find out more
FOSTER A PET
If you can only open your home on a temporary basis, fostering an animal is a great way to rescue an animal in need. Every animal that you foster is given a second chance at life – and the more you foster, the more lives you can help save.
Support the SPCA by donating your time, there are a range of volunteer options to suit you.You can help them out by:
- Volunteering at your local centre or SPCA op shop
- Fundraising on annual appeal day
There are many ways that you can help the SPCA give animals in need the second chance they deserve. Be it a regular donation or a one-off gift, your love and support can help save many lives.Find out more about how you can help below.
Casper is one of the lucky pets adopted from the Auckland SPCA thanks to Sara Chung! Casper was quite shy and was hiding all the time but this just made Sara fall in love and after convincing her husband to adopt Casper, his true personality shone through!
After being dumped with his siblings and mum at the CHCH SPCA, Tip was adopted by Lyn Clearwater and together they ended up competing in Obedience Rally O and Agility! Now 11yrs young, Tip is living an amazing retired life.
BRUMBY, TUI & GINGERNUT
Brumby was adopted from Whangarei SPCA in 2009, and was soon joined by Gingernut - the neighbourhood terror. Gingernut brought home a wee girl Tabby called Tui, and after she gave birth Whangarei SPCA came to the rescue and fostered her and the kittens. Tui then returned home to join her brothers, and it's like she never left!
CHROME & OPIE
After adopting Chrome and Opie from the Waikato SPCA and needing some sunscreen for Opie’s nose and ears, Maree Ringer headed back to the SPCA for some sunscreen where they adopted another fur baby - Spice! What a great Furrytale ending.
SHARE THE CHEER
For Christmas in 2017, we wanted to do something extra special for the SPCA, so we sent special deliveries to the 40 SPCA centres nationwide, filled with pet treats, beds, food bowls and toys for the many cats and dogs at each centre.
We also wanted to thank the amazing SPCA staff and volunteers who give their time and effort to ensuring these animals are looked after, so we sent some human treats too as a small token of our appreciation.
