New SPCA op shop opens on North Shore

New SPCA op shop opens on North Shore

SPCA Auckland is opening a new op shop at 231 Hinemoa Street, Birkenhead – the organisation’s second op shop on the North Shore – with an opening day party on Saturday, 9 March from 10am to 3pm.

Festivities will include a sausage sizzle, candyfloss, face painting, and details of dogs available for adoption.

SPCA Auckland’s op shops provide a vital revenue stream that helps fund the rescue and rehabilitation of about 19,000 abandoned, abused, or neglected in Auckland every year, according to Christine Kalin, SPCA Auckland CEO.

“We’re delighted to open our sixth op shop in Auckland – the others are at Browns Bay, Henderson, Glen Innes, Howick, and Onehunga,” says Ms Kalin.

“These shops enable animal lovers to support SPCA while getting bargains on bric-a-brac, furniture, clothing, kids toys, jewellery, and much more. We get no direct government funding so every dollar we raise through these stores helps ease our funding burden.

“Basically if you buy a second-hand sofa from our new Birkenhead store, you’re putting money directly into funding our Animal Rescue Service, our team of Inspectors, our Animal Village in Mangere where hundreds of animals are cared for while they await adoption, and much more.

Following the opening day, the Birkenhead shop will be open from 10am to 4pm weekdays and 10am to 2pm Saturdays. Members of the public wishing to donate their time can volunteer to help run the store – simply apply www.spca.org.nz. And anyone with good quality items to sell in the shop – including furniture, cookware, bric-a-brac, clothing, jewellery, and bags – can drop them at any of SPCA Auckland’s six op shops.
