Our rescue 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.
All funds raised and/or deposited into our account go to the dogs that are in the care of the Trust as each of our Team Members are volunteers. 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.
We thank you immensely for the support and helping us to help the dogs who need it.
