Whangarei SPCA always has lots of animals in need of new homes. Our Tip of the Week feature includes details of one SPCA animal up for adoption, and an SPCA tip for animal care.


Nike is a happy, friendly, fun puppy with high energy levels.

The border collie-huntaway cross loves being busy.

Nike would be suitable for a family with older children.


He is looking for an active, rural home.

Nike is five-and-a-half months old.

His tip: It's getting too hot to leave your dog sitting in the car during the day while you go shopping.

If you can't get them out under a tree or in the shade where it's cooler, keep them safe by leaving them at home. Dogs do die in hot cars.

If you're worried about a dog in a car in the heat call the SPCA. 09 438 9161.
