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!

Our biggest fundraising event for the SPCA is back and we need your help! If you have some time to spare, we would really appreciate your assistance as one of our Annual Appeal Collectors on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th of November 2014 - for more information and to register, please click here to complete our online form, or go to our volunteer vacancies page.

Project 2nd Chance is a capital appeal, raising funds to rebuild our dog rehabilitation unit. Click on the logo for more info or click here to watch our short video.

The Justice Fund is our current appeal to help our Inspectorate team continue to bring animal abusers to justice. Please click here for more information.
