Making a difference in Oamaru

Under Alert Level 1 our centre is open, however, enquiries about adoptions, fostering and volunteering are by appointment. We ask anyone who would like to come to a centre to contact us first and make an appointment. You can do so by calling our centre on the number provided above. If you are dropping off donations we would love to see you during our opening hours at any time.

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.
