When you adopt a puppy from Auckland Puppy Rescue, your dog will be:
- Microchipped, with microchip registered on the NZCAC Animal Register
- Vaccinated (including Lepto and Kennel Cough)
- Flea and worm treated
- Health checked by our vet
We can also offer you access to the following discounted goods and services*:
- Discounted puppy classes with Dog Guru
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ADOPT?
Our adoption fee is only $340 per puppy/dog, which is well under the actual cost to vaccinate, desex and microchip each puppy. The adoption fee helps to cover 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.
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, please email our Adoption Team to find out which puppies we currently have available to adopt.
