Making a difference in AshburtonVolunteer with us
SPCA's Ashburton Centre opened its doors in August 2018 and shares its premises with the Ashburton District Council Pound.
Currently we have one full-time staff member who is also the Area Manager for the West Coast and Rural Canterbury as well as two part-time staff members who look after the centre on the weekends.
Our centre covers from the Rakaia River to the Rangitata, with Inspectorate cover coming from Christchurch.
We have support from the Christchurch community engagement team for educational services in Ashburton.
All cruelty reports should be made by phone: 03 307 1019
Do not email or Facebook us to report emergencies.
Our team are on call between 8am-6pm Monday to Thursday, 9am-6pm on Fridays, and 9am-12pm on Saturdays.
If you have an animal emergency outside of these hours, please contact Ashburton Vetlife on 03 307 5195. They are the base for a 24/7 emergency service that also services the Methven and Dunsandel areas.
For any problems with stray, found or lost dogs, please contact your local council.
