Welcome to SPCA Otago - The Otago Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Incorporated 

SPCA Otago strives to ensure humane treatment of all animals in the Otago province.  Our mission is to build a loving community in which everyone values animals’ needs, and to ensure people take action when animals are being mistreated.  As a minimum, all animals should be able to enjoy the Five Freedoms provided for by the Animal Welfare Act 1999:

Freedom from hunger and thirst;

Freedom from discomfort;

Freedom from pain, injury or disease;

Freedom to express normal behaviour;

Freedom from fear and distress
