Making a difference in OamaruVolunteer with us
Our Oamaru Centre is situated behind Vetlife in Oamaru. We have one full-time animal welfare inspector who attends animal welfare call-outs in the North Otago and South Canterbury areas.
All cruelty reports should be made by phone: 03 434 8196
Do not email or Facebook us to report emergencies.
If you need to report an animal welfare concern about a companion animal, our team will be on call during our centre opening hours – please see above. If you have an animal emergency outside of these hours, please contact your nearest after-hours vet clinic.
For any problems with stray, found or lost dogs, please contact the local council. Please contact the local police for any instances where an animal or person/s welfare is at immediate risk.
