Making a difference in Canterbury

Volunteer with us

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.

Specific enquiries

Enquiry types

Due to limited space and resources, unfortunately SPCA does not usually accept owned animals into our care.

As a charity, we do not have sufficient space and resources to provide a rehoming service for owned animals, and have to prioritise sick, stray or injured animals.

If you need to rehome your pet, please click here for advice.
