NZCR is operated by Volunteers and relies solely upon donations, fundraising, bequests and sponsorship in order to take in surrenders and provide the healthcare and other necessities that each dog requires. Thank you for inquiring as to how you can help our cause! 100% of the funds raised and/or deposited into our account go to the dogs that are in the care of the Trust. Each of the products donated is used by our foster carers for dogs in the care of the trust. We thank you immensely for the support! NZCR is a New Zealand Registered Charity. All donations made to NZCR are tax deductible. Please consult the Inland Revenue Department for information as to how to claim for your donation.
The trust funds are used to: transport surrendered dogs around New Zealand to foster carers, Council registration and micro-chipping, vaccinating, de-sexing and other necessary veterinary care, together with purchasing any disposables required for the dog.
Volunteering: Unfortunately, as we do not have a center at present, all of our dogs are with foster carers. As a result, we cannot offer any regular work to volunteers at this time.
Thank you very much for thinking of us!
Bequests: If you wish to leave a gift or part of the residue of your estate to NZCR please include our details as: New Zealand Chihuahua Rescue Trust (Charity no. CC55119).
