Report stray cats and mistreatment of cats

Rīpoatahia ngā ngeru makere noa me te tūkinohia o te ngeru

A cat that appears to be stray may in fact be one that is missing or stolen from its home. Cats wander long distances, particularly if frightened by something or confused by injury or illness.

​What to do if you see a stray cat

If a cat has been hanging around your property and you suspect it is a stray, contact organisations that can help in reuniting cats with their owners:

  • The SPCA can give advice and help - see the SPCA's Found an animal guide for advice on how to manage and report a stray cat.
  • Use Pets on the Net to post a found cat notice or view lost cat listings, free of charge - visit the
    Pets on the Net website.

Mistreatment of cats

If you have a concern about the mistreatment or welfare of cats, contact the SPCA.
