Dogwatch Sanctuary Trust is a registered Charitable Trust that specialises in the rescue and rehoming of dogs and puppies that are on death row at the Christchurch City, Waimakariri, Selwyn and Ashburton pounds.

Once rescued, these dogs are cared for by a very dedicated team of 4 staff and 80 volunteers, at our purpose-built Adoption Centre located at 230 Dyers Road, Bromley, Christchurch. Before going to their very own home, all dogs are assessed, registered, microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, flea’d and wormed. A property check is carried out on their prospective new home, to ensure it is secure with full solid fencing.


Dogwatch is the LAST CHANCE for many abandoned dogs across Canterbury, and for every dog that is being cared for at Dogwatch, there are many more on ‘limited time’ and in desperate need of a kennel space. Every day that Dogwatch is at full capacity, there is another dog that may never get a second chance. So, we ask that you help us spread the word and OPT TO ADOPT the next time you are considering a four-legged family member.

Dogwatch does not receive any government or council funding, so we rely on the generosity of businesses and people just like you. This may come to us in the form of monetary donations or bequests, food, blankets and bedding, or volunteering of your time.


Dogwatch also has a second-hand variety shop located on the corner of Beresford and Hardy Streets in New Brighton. You can support us by donating your quality, unwanted household goods or clothing.

For further information on how you may be able to help Dogwatch give more second chances, please contact Kelly or Patria.
