Your support means the world to us. Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of dogs across the Whangārei and Kaipara regions. We can't do what we do without the support of our community. 

We are a registered New Zealand not-for-profit charity organisation and rely solely on donations and the generosity of people like you.

There are many ways you can support us and make a difference to all the dogs we support  – make a donation, give a monthly gift, or donate goods for our fundraising efforts.

Every donation – no matter what amount – is gratefully received and makes a huge difference.

Donate Goods

We will happily take new or 'gently loved' doggy items including collars, leads, blankets, kennels, and bowls that your dog has outgrown or no longer needs. These will be rehomed to dogs we support in the community.

We also take dog food and new items for fundraising raffles or ventures.


Other ways to get involved

Get in touch! We welcome fundraising initiatives at work, raffles, events, and partnerships with businesses.

Become a Business Sponsor

We are always looking for like-minded businesses and organisations to work together with. We believe sponsorship is a partnership and has to work both ways. Contact us to find out more and how you can get involved!
