Under Alert Level 1 our centre can reopen, however, entry will be by appointment only. We ask anyone who would like to come to a centre to enquire about adopting, fostering, or volunteering to contact us first and make an appointment. You can make an appointment by calling our centre on the number provided below. If you are dropping off donations we would love to see you during our opening hours at any time.
SPCA's Christchurch Centre is the oldest established SPCA in New Zealand and has been the voice for those who can’t speak for themselves since 1872.
With approximately 40 dedicated staff and over 500 incredible volunteers the Christchurch Centre is also the largest in the Southern Region and works hard to provide support to other centres ensuring better outcomes for NZ animals.
Our Centre’s primary focus is animal welfare, however we also have a small retail shop onsite with 100% of profits going back into helping the animals.
If the animal is healthy and not in danger, please click here to see how you can help.
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.
