SPCA Inspectors face the heartache of seeing first-hand the cruelty inflicted on some animals.  Equally, they experience the joy of witnessing their recovery to good health; they share in the satisfaction of knowing that families they have worked with are treating their animals better; and they feel a sense of achievement when individual cases are completed.

SPCA Inspectors play an integral role in the organisation's work throughout Otago. They provide:

  • Hands-on treatment of animals in crisis
  • Information and advice
  • Management of emergency cases
  • Advice to local councils
  • Documentation for prosecution cases

SPCA Inspectors contribute significantly to the organisation's primary goals of:

  • Preventing cruelty to animals
  • Alleviating suffering of animals
  • Education and advocacy
