SPCA Otago staff members are available 24/7 in emergency situations - such as a life threatening injury or illness.

We will immediately respond to any urgent animal crisis when you call us on (03) 473 8252 or 0800 682 467.

If you discover an injured animal please call us immediately and we can advise you of the best course of action.

If you are concerned about the welfare of an animal and think it is being neglected or abused, then you can call to make a complaint. Even if it is After-Hours, we have Inspectors available for consultation in urgent situations.  All calls are completely confidential.

Please do not send an email or contact us via Facebook in an emergency, as these communication lines are not constantly monitored.
