Dogs for adoption


About Us

Dog Rescue Dunedin has been set up to foster and re-home dogs that have been left unwanted at the Dunedin City Council Pound. Dogs impounded by Animal Control are held at the DCC Pound, owners have 7 days to claim their dog. If unclaimed they are available for adoption directly from the pound, but many are left unwanted, and are destined to be "put down". Dog Rescue Dunedin rescues these unwanted dogs and provides essentials (registration, microchipping, desexing, vaccination, food) and foster care while advertising for new owners. Read more about us

Dog Rescue Dunedin's activities are ONLY funded by donations from the public. Please support us. Any donation is very much appreciated and will help save another dog.
