Welcome to SPCA Canterbury
We have been proudly serving the animals and community of Canterbury for over 140 years. Our core purpose is to prevent the cruelty and suffering of animals through education and enforcement. We are dedicated to ensuring all animals have the right to receive proper and sufficient care - "The Five Freedoms".
Each year we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome thousands of lost, sick, injured, abused and abandoned animals. The cost of operating this service is in excess of $2 million per annum. SPCA Canterbury is not government funded and relies on the generosity of the community to meet these needs by way of donations, sponsorship and bequests. We appreciate your support!
