About Us

You don't have to own animals to learn about and spend time with them!

Wellington SPCA education programmes teach compassion and responsible behaviour towards animals. They help people to recognise that all creatures matter, not just those we regard

Kids of all ages are invited to take part in our exciting educational and fun Animal Crew events, which are jam-packed with animal activities.

Can you think of a better way for your young animal lovers to learn about animals, make friends, play outrageous games, and hang out and help some amazing animals all at the same time? At Wellington SPCA’s Animal Crew events, kids can do all of these things.

Different events see kids learning how to do everything from training, caring for and being a responsible animal guardian, to making our community a safer place for our pets. Kids are not the only ones who will have fun – we will also be spending a lot of time with our centre animals. We are happy to offer this opportunity to mature, respectful young people.

We are looking for kids who want to build on their love of furry friends by learning how to provide a lifetime of love and care for companion animals. Our Animal Crew programmes are designed to promote kindness and compassion for all animals. Animal Crew combines animal care and behaviour learning activities, team projects, craft activities, and hands-on interactions with animals such as cats, kittens, dogs, rabbits, rats and more!
