Two men who filmed themselves encouraging dogs to attack goats and posted it on social media are among those on the SPCA's list of shame.

The SPCA released the list today to coincide with its annual appeal week.

The list shows there is still work to be done to protect animals in New Zealand, chief executive Ric Odom says.

"The list of shame highlights the on-going need for the inspectorates who daily rescue abused and neglected animals as well as providing education, vet care and shelter for these vulnerable pets."

The SPCA would love to see the day there wasn't enough mistreatment to create a list, he said.

"We are not there yet but we are committed to doing everything we can to prevent the sort of cruelty our teams deal with daily."
