Adopting a dog is a life altering decision that should not be taken lightly. We'd like to match every dog with the most suitable family or owner. Consider your personal circumstances before taking on the responsibility of owning a dog.
We have temporarily stopped the weekly dog microchipping sessions until further notice.
Our animal shelter is closed to the public, but we're still caring for animals. Currently, no animals at our shelter can be adopted. If adoptions resume during the COVID-19 emergency period, these dogs will be posted on Facebook as normal.
If you've been advised that your dog is currently at the shelter, please contact the shelter directly on (03) 941 7048 and leave a message. We'll be in touch to make arrangements for you to pick up your dog.

If visiting the dog shelter you may see a dog that you like to adopt, you must be prepared to commit to the health, welfare and care of the dog.
You can discuss adopting a dog with shelter staff at 10 Metro Place(external link), Bromley, Christchurch.
When adopting a dog you need to bring a form of identification, such as your drivers licence, passport, utility bill or birth certificate.
