About Canterbury Tails

The only difference between an animal that is cuddled and one who is farmed is the human in their lives.

We are a small family run animal rescue and sanctuary in the South Island of New Zealand.  Our small size is an advantage as we don’t have staff or land costs to contend with which means donations go 100% to helping animals. To housing, food, welfare, transport and advertising to find new homes.  Since 2017, we’ve taken in “pets” as well as animals destined for the freezer and found safe forever homes for many others. We decided that by working with others and asking for help, together we could be the change in more lives, animal and human, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Canterbury Tails Animal Rescue and Sanctuary. Founded in 2017 and registered as a charitable trust in 2020.

Music provided by Grace Stainthorpe and her partner, Callum Margetts.

Music wields both of these musicians with passion and mania; from lilting folk and heart wrenching melancholy from the violin, to the inferno of a slow burn in the guitar. Callum and Grace are part of the Christchurch music scene, and will play a mixture of bohemian funk and folk on the violin and guitar. There may even be a banjo!

PARKING: Please remember to park on the street as cars parked in residents car park will be towed.
