Adopting a dog is a life-changing decision for you and for the dog. This decision should not be taken lightly. We'd like to match every dog with the most suitable family or owner.
Christchurch is currently at Orange setting in the COVID-19 Protection Framework.
When coming to view a dog for adoption, please wear a mask.
If you see a dog that you'd like to adopt, you can discuss this with the shelter team.
You will need to bring your personal identification, such as your driver's licence, passport, utility bill or birth certificate to prove you are over 16 years of age.
