When you adopt from Auckland Puppy Rescue, your puppy will be:
- Desexed - this is a requirement of adoption, and is not optional
- Microchipped, with microchip registered on the NZCAR Animal Register
- Vaccinated (including Lepto and Kennel Cough)
- Flea and worm treated
- Health checked by our vet
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ADOPT?
Our adoption fee is just $340 per puppy, which is well under the actual cost to vaccinate, desex and microchip each puppy. The adoption fee goes toward the costs incurred in rescuing, fostering, and vet fees, and we make up the shortfall through fundraising.
WHAT ARE OUR REQUIREMENTS?
We follow a strict adoption process to make sure our puppies go to great homes where they will be safe and secure, which includes carrying out a property inspection.
Your puppy should have somewhere warm to sleep inside at night, and somewhere dry to shelter from the elements if outside during the day.
We prefer fully-fenced, owner-occupied homes, but we are happy to discuss your situation with you.
It's important that you have given serious consideration to the amount of time you will need to train and socialise your puppy, the on-going costs for things like food and vet bills, and that you are ready for a commitment which should last for a long time.
WHAT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DESEX A PUPPY YOU ADOPT FROM US?
Our organisation exists because there are too many unwanted puppies needing homes, and we are very passionate about desexing to stop the cycle.
We do not allow any dogs we rehome to breed or have one litter prior to desexing. If you adopt from us, desexing is not an option. Desexing will be performed before an adoption can be completed.
WHERE CAN YOU SEE THE PUPPIES AVAILABLE TO ADOPT?
We foster our puppies in family homes all over Auckland, so that they can experience real family life, and learn about the world in a safe, loving environment.
As we don't have a shelter facility where you can meet all of the puppies at once, you can see our puppies available to adopt online: Click here to see our puppies
