Tauranga SPCA

SPCA Tauranga, like all regional SPCA or RNZSPCA organisations, relies completely on the generosity and energy of local supporters who share our compassion for animals. We are a purely voluntary organisation, receiving no state funding whatsoever.  All donations are greatly appreciated and go along way in helping us with the care of unfortunate animals we tend to on a daily basis.

Punishment Doesn't Work

Author: Cheniel Powell - Education Officer

As pet owners, I’m sure we’ve all had times when our adorably cute little friends have tested our patience to the absolute limit.
