The Bay of Islands SPCA provides essential medical care to animals that are sick and injured, as well as routine health checks, vaccinations, microchips and desexing for all companion animals.
Every animal is medically checked when they arrive. For many animals this can be a simple routine health check, but sadly for those with significant medical issues, getting back to health can involve intensive treatment, long-term care and in some cases emergency life saving surgery.
All animals are vaccinated before they are put up for adoption. This helps stop the spread of diseases like cat flu and parvo.
All companion animals are microchipped and registered on a animalregister.co.nz/national database. Microchipping is one of the best forms of identification and it means if that animal is found, they can easily be reunited with their owners.
Only desexing will reduce the number of unwanted and neglected animals and reduce the suffering caused as a direct result. We desex all companion animals before they are put up for adoption.
Life Saving Surgery
When needed life saving surgery is undertaken, the SPCA working tirelessly to ensure the best outcome for every animal.
We are extremely grateful to our volunteer foster parents who provide temporary homes for animals who are recovering from flu, other illnesses, or surgery. These animals are given a quiet, loving temporary home to recover before they return to the Village to be put up for adoption.
