Giving Animals a Second Chance

Giving Animals a Second Chance

Welcome to the Nelson SPCA in Nelson, New Zealand

Each year the Nelson SPCA provides shelter to around 2,000 animals in need. These animals arrive at our centre for reasons including neglect, abuse, lost or stray and unwanted animals. Here at the Nelson SPCA we re-home hundreds of animals, provide educational advice on caring for animals and respond to complaints about animal cruelty and neglect.

Scaredy Cats Needing Foster Care

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 11:28

This is Teddy and Molly, a brother and sister who are around 5 months old. They came to us a wee while ago and have come out of their shells a bit but are in need of some extra time and attention to make them feel safe in the world.
We are in need of people who have a secure spare room in their home and the extra time to spend with these types of cats to help them get ready to find homes of their own. If you feel you can provide this please get in touch with the Nelson SPCA on 547 7171 for further details, we'd love to hear from you!
