Making a difference in OamaruVolunteer with us
Our Oamaru Centre is situated behind Vetlife in Oamaru. It is a small centre and currently we are only housing cats and occasionally have rabbits and birds.
However, we are getting a new building which will allow us to have a wider range of animals.
We have one full-time animal welfare inspector who attends animal welfare call-outs in the North Otago and South Canterbury areas.
If you have found a sick or injured animal, contact us immediately on 03 434 8196 or 0800 682 467 (after hours).
If you have found a roaming or dangerous dog, please call the Waitaki District Council on 03 433 0300.
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.
