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 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.
