In December 2013, the Wellington SPCA moved it services into the historic, Category II heritage listed Fever Hospital, Wellington. The Fever Hospital opened in 1918 as a hospital for patients with infectious diseases, and so was isolated from the rest of Wellington by building it on the top of Mount Victoria.
In August 2007, the Wellington City Council and The Wellington SPCA entered into an agreement to lease and the SPCA transformed this historic Wellington icon into a hospital for animals, still, however, sympathetically retaining its history and grandeur.
The site is situated only 4 kilometers from the Wellington Airport and has numerous accommodation facilities in close proximity. Based on the Town Belt and on Mount Victoria, the views and surrounding areas are magnificent. The centre has 3 meeting rooms, the larger one holding up to 70 people, a smaller one holding up to 25 people and the smallest holding 6. The smaller rooms can be hired on their own or can be hired in conjunction with any of the other rooms for use as break out rooms.
White Boards, Flip Charts and use of a projector and screen are included in the cost of room hire, however additional hire charges may be applicable depending on the size of the group.
Full catering and plenty of free parking is also available. Conference delegates can be treated to a tour of the new facilities and a talk of its history. Interaction with the animals is also offered. Revenue generated from this initiative helps support the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of abused, neglected and unloved animals in the Wellington and Waikanae areas.
