Welcome to the Motueka Branch of the Society for the Prevention of the Cruelty to Animals. Our mission is to give sanctuary to animals in distress, re-home suitable animals wherever possible and promote responsible pet ownership.

Located in the Motueka township we work closely with our sister branch of the Nelson SPCA.

Motueka SPCA is there to give a voice to the animals of the area and to prevent cruelty through education, action and, as a last resort, enforcement. Our focus is on prevention of cruelty through education rather than persecuting and prosecuting negligent owners. Our focus is on cats as we do not have the facilities to house dogs at present. We are hopeful that this will change.

Early in 2014 we began a concentrated effort to encourage cat de-sexing and are able to offer some financial assistance to people in situations of genuine hardship. This campaign is expected to run for approx 3 years after which we expect to see a significant drop in numbers of unhomed cats and kittens. The campaign will then shift focus into "maintenance" mode to ensure numbers do not build up again.
