How to Apply to Adopt a Dog

The above dogs are some of the dogs that are in our care currently. We also have dogs in foster care throughout New Zealand who will become available as they are ready. If you are interested in any of our dogs, please submit an application form (together with recent photos of your property and landlord consent, if you are renting or in a Housing New Zealand property) to the email address provided on the form we will then make contact with you. 


If the current dogs are not available in your area or do not suit your lifestyle, you can still submit an application form to be retained in our database. We will notify you if your application has been accepted. Please ensure that you inform us if you are no longer able to adopt after being placed on our database. We consult the database prior to advertising via the website and our social media.   

 
Adoption Forms
Please fill out the below form and email NZCR at the email address provided. The forms are PDF but CANNOT be edited with a computer, as we require your signature on the document. The original signed form needs to be retained and forwarded to the Trust should you be successful. 


Please do not contact the Rescue by email in the first instance - we will refer you back to the forms below. Please read the adoption form and adoption manual carefully for your obligations.
