Making a difference in AshburtonVolunteer with us
SPCA's Ashburton Centre opened the doors at our new location on Seafield Road in December 2020. The centre primarily houses felines, with other animals being transferred to the Christchurch centre.
Currently we have one full time staff member - our Team Leader, Foster and Volunteer Coordinator, as well as a part time Senior Animal Attendant, and part time Animal Attendant, who look after all our animals.
Our centre covers from the Rakaia River to the Rangitata, with Inspectorate cover coming from Christchurch.
If you have found a sick or injured animal, contact us immediately on 03 307 1019.
If you have an animal emergency outside of our opening hours, please contact the Christchurch Centre on 03 349 7057 for further advice.
If you have found a roaming or dangerous dog, please call the Ashburton District Council on 03 307 7700.

We list every incoming stray animal on www.lostpet.co.nz so please check the listings to see if we might have your missing pet.
If your animal is not listed, we have some tips on how to find your pet on our Advice & Welfare section.
