Adopt a dog

We have a very active rehome programme that produces fantastic results. We also get assistance from the SPCA, HUHA and other rescue organisations.

All prospective owners will need to have a property inspection to show they have dog-free access to their front door.

All our dogs are temperament tested to make sure they're suitable for rehoming, microchipped and are required to be desexed (vouchers are available).

Our adoption service costs can include:

  • a $40 sale fee
  • a $25 vaccination fee
  • a desexing voucher (on application - dependant on weight and sex of dog)
  • the registration fee for the year (pro-rata for the year)

If you're interested in adopting, please contact jane.schuitema@huttcity.govt.nz or vicki.harwood@huttcity.govt.nz.
