Moby, one of our staff member's cats, is a huge cuddler. While he is shown here cuddling his teddy bear, his mum also wakes up sometimes to find him cuddling her.

He is also particularly smoochy when it's raining outside.

What makes your pets cuddly and when are they the cuddliest? Whether it's soft toys, their brothers and sisters, or you, please share with us your photos below!

Have you seen the story of Bernese, Crispin, and Ashley? These three 6-week-old kittens had nowhere to hide but under a pile of sticks and leaves.

They thought they were safe, but their world was suddenly disrupted when their shelter started smoking. These poor innocent kittens had made their home in a bonfire.

Thankfully, they were rescued and brought to the SPCA where they received the...

Macey, Maude and Mara were cruelly abandoned and dumped in a cardboard box at only 2-weeks-old.

These three young puppies had no food, no water and nothing but the empty cardboard box to keep them warm. They were dumped by the very people who were supposed to be looking after them and keeping them safe.

Fortunately, a kind boy found them and brought them to the SPCA. They were then taken to...

Last week, we introduced you to the clever Champagne, who the team at SPCA AUCKLAND are so eager to find a new home for.

Here she is playing with her Kong toy for the first time.

We know she isn’t a tiny cute and fluffy puppy, but believe us when we say she epitomises a puppy at heart.

Very sadly, her previously owner didn’t have the time or knowledge to care for Champagne properly, and as...

Thousands of animals need rescuing every year from all sorts of awful situations, some of which are truly unimaginable.

Kevin, an SPCA Inspector, has dedicated years of his life to saving hundreds – if not thousands – of these animals.

Banjo was found by Inspector Kevin fighting for her life in the bush. When he brought her to the SPCA she was so exhausted that she curled up in bed and...

β€’ Fresh vegetables (or occasional fruits)
β€’ Fibre and occasional table foods (e.g. whole oats, wheat, maize/ barley/ pea silage, wholemeal rice etc.)

Hi everyone! My name is Jaxon!

I am only 8 months old but my life has already been rather uncertain. You see, I thought I belonged to someone who I could trust, and who would be there for me forever.

When they couldn’t find a place to live that wanted me too, I wasn’t scared because I never thought my owner would give up. I thought we were meant to be soul mates.

Then I heard my owner say...

Whangarei Branch SPCA is holding two FREE microchipping days so owners can keep track of their pet cats and kittens.

Lots of cats and kittens end up in the care of SPCA, many of whom are clearly much-loved pets. While the team do their best to reunite them with their owners, it's not always possible – cats can wander long distances and be difficult to identify. Microchipping gives your pet...

Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $30, $60 or whatever you can afford to help us give thousands more...

Last week our friends at SPCA AUCKLAND shared a heart-warming video showing how well the lovely bunny duo Bob and Todd are doing at their new home. Well, their story made the news!

Bob and Todd were two bunnies who were dumped in a plastic bag, and were only found just in the nick of time. After their ordeal, they were understandably wary of humans. Their fur was stained yellow from neglect...

Could you picture, for a moment, three little kittens abandoned with nowhere to go?

Bernese, Crispin, and Ashley were all alone in the world, with nothing but each other. Confused and frightened, they found what they thought was a safe place to hide and took cover under a pile of sticks and leaves.

Suddenly the world of Bernese, Crispin and Ashley was disrupted again when their shelter...

Meet Oriana from SPCA Kawerau.

This lovely girl has been through a lot and needs a forever home to show her the love and care she deserves.

Just 3 months old, Oriana was found tied to a bridge, so weak she was unable to walk. Her rescuer, who was out walking, carried the pup back to her car and took her to a vet for immediate treatment. Oriana struggled to eat for some days, but is now much...

While they may get a bad rap, rats are extremely intelligent and friendly animals that make great pets.

They are also very social animals and require at least one other rat friend. In the wild, rats live in groups so it's in their nature to have company.

Rats should be housed together from a young age and ideally be siblings. Always try to introduce cage-mates to one another soon after...

Rabbits’ teeth grow throughout their lives and dental problems are common.

Make sure you provide your rabbits with adequate chewing material. Branches from trees such as willow, apple, pear,...
