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!

Project 2nd Chance is our exciting upcoming appeal raising funds to rebuild our dog rehabilitation facility. Click on the logo for more info.
** We urgently require donations of blankets, dog bedding, old towels or sheets if you have any you can donate we kindly ask that you drop it in to our Animal Centre at 14 Wilmers Road, Hornby. We really appreciate your support and have some 'small paws' who are very grateful too. Thank you! **
