Making a difference in AshburtonVolunteer with us
Our Ashburton Centre will be closed for adoptions from 24 March, and closed to the public from 25 March until further notice due to the Covid-19 nationwide lockdown.
SPCA's Ashburton Centre opened its doors in August 2018 and shares its premises with the Ashburton District Council Pound.
Currently we have two full time staff members, our Centre Manager who is also the Area Manager for the West Coast and Rural Canterbury and the Operations Coordinator, who looks after our Volunteer and Foster progams. We also have three amazing part time staff who look after all our animals.
Our centre covers from the Rakaia River to the Rangitata, with Inspectorate cover coming from Christchurch.
