Adoption

SPCA Otago ensures that all healthy animals coming into our care are offered for adoption to homes that we consider acceptable and will be suitable for the animal.  By adopting an animal from SPCA Otago you’ll be providing a new home to an animal who desperately needs your love.

All our animals have undergone a behavioural assessment.  Their temperament is thoroughly evaluated to ensure that they will be adopted into homes that will best suit both the animals and the new owners. 

The SPCA maintains a strict policy on desexing and we neuter both adult male and female cats and dogs prior to adoption.  Puppies that are not neutered at the time of adoption will come with a desexing voucher that must be redeemed before the expiry date.  This policy is strictly enforced as our contribution towards reducing the number of surplus unwanted animals.
