Face-to-face Fundraising

We currently have fundraising representatives carrying out a face-to-face fundraising campaign throughout NZ. Face-to-face Fundraising

This involves us recruiting at supermarkets and at pre-approved street sites, as well as knocking on doors to talk to people about our work and asking them to support us with a regular gift. 

This method of fundraising is one of the most effective ways to recruit new supporters and ensures that we can continue to help over 48,000 animals every year.

Face-to-face Fundraising Locations

Our fundraisers will always have identification with their name and the company they work for.

To check the locations where our face to face campaigns are currently being carried out, please click here to download a PDF file with table of locations.

If you have any concerns about the legitimacy of a face-to-face fundraiser please call us on 09 256 7300 (Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm), and we will be able to verify the legitimacy of a fundraiser.

Why do you use this as a method of fundraising?

This method of fundraising is a very efficient and cost-effective way of generating income and attracting new supporters to SPCA New Zealand.

We receive very little government funding so regular donations are hugely important to us and vital for us to continue our work. Direct debit is also a cost-effective way to donate as it allows us to keep our administrative costs to a minimum and the length of the commitment helps us to plan ahead and budget effectively.

How do I know that the person fundraising is legitimate? Should they have ID?

All of our fundraisers wear SPCA branded clothing and carry official identification cards. They will also be carrying SPCA literature and direct debit/credit card authority forms.

Do you have permission to fundraise in my area?

Before we fundraise in any area we always get permission from the relevant local authority, the manager of privately owned premises or the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (whichever is appropriate).

Is this type of fundraising regulated?

The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) is a self-regulating body that is dedicated to ensuring high standards of quality, transparency and integrity in this type of fundraising. It regulates fundraising activities used by charities and professional fundraising organisations and enforces a Code of Practice, which aims to make certain that peoples’ experience of this type of fundraising is positive.

The SPCA closely monitors its face to face fundraising campaigns to ensure that their representatives adhere to the regulations and Codes of Practice set out by the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association.

SPCA Fight Fund

fight-fund-2

SPCA New Zealand needs YOUR help to prosecute animal cruelty cases. Donate to our Fight Fund here.

SPCA New Zealand is the only non-governmental organisation in New Zealand that is entrusted with the legal powers to prosecute animal offenders under the Animal Welfare Act 1999. Of more than 14,000 complaints received by SPCA centres throughout New Zealand each year, we undertake prosecutions for cases of national importance.

We also assist our smaller centres to conduct a growing number of prosecutions and we facilitate this via our relationship with The Crown Prosecutor. We do not have government funding to support this process.

Depending on the complexity of such cases, the costs can reach many thousands of dollars. Extreme cases can take up to six years in proceedings and can cost up to $50,000. These are not just legal fees and court costs. It also costs to collect and prepare evidence, and relocate, rehabilitate and rehome any animals that may survive in these atrocious cases.

The SPCA Fight Fund has been established to help cover such costs for any of our 47 SPCA centres as needed. On occasions, some cases have been impeded or failed to be prosecuted due to lack of local funds. We need to resolve this as it is absolutely vital that these offenders are prevented from continuing to abuse animals. The Fight Fund is about having the needed funds available at short notice in order that prompt action can be taken. To expose and prosecute these sorts of cases, please help us build this fund urgently by donating now.

 

Why do we prosecute some people and not others?

Wherever possible we offer advice and assistance to improve animal welfare, and this sometimes means giving people time to make improvements. This is not always possible or appropriate. For example, if there has been a deliberate act of violence against an animal, when people won't accept assistance, or in extreme cases of neglect.

Give It UpGive It Up

Sugar, alcohol, smoking... What will you give up for the animals? Choose something to give up for a period of time and ask your friends, family, colleagues, neighbours and teachers to make a donation. It might be something you consume a lot of (alcohol, coffee, chocolate), something you want to do less of (talking, social media), or something you want to give up completely (meat, smoking, fast food).

 

In MemoryIn Memory

Honour the life of a beloved friend, family member or pet who has passed away by raising vital funds for animals in need. Set up a tribute page and share the link with friends, family, colleagues or anyone who may like to contribute.


 

Special OccasionSpecial Occasion

Donating your birthday, your wedding or another celebration is a great way of raising vital funds for New Zealand's animals. Instead of gifts, simply ask your friends, family and colleagues to donate to your fundraising page instead.
