Animal visiting programme

developing companionship for our residents with the animals and their owners alike.

Currently, there are visiting animals at a number of Selwyn locations, developing companionship for our residents with the animals and their owners alike.

Outreach Therapy Pets is a joint initiative between St John and SPCA which involves more than 300 volunteers and their pets visiting rest homes, hospitals and other health services, to bring comfort to residents and patients and promote emotional well-being.

If you are interested in volunteering with Outreach Therapy Pets visit the SPCA website, or the St John website. If you're looking for the Outreach Programme in the north island contact outreach@spca.org.nz or if you're in the south island click here.
