Homeless Hounds

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ The Rotorua Lakes Council Animal Control Unit impounds around 2,000 dogs each year. Only half that number get claimed by their owners. While we can't save them all, here are some we think deserve a second chance.

Please contact Rotorua Animal Control on 07 348 4199 if you think you can give one of these dogs a decent home, or visit the pound between 2pm - 4.30pm Monday-Friday

Mikey is a very cool male Lab x, about 8 or 9 months old. He's playful and cheeky. He loves going for his walks and very well behaved on the lead. Mikey would love a family to call his own, but with older children; only because he might knock small children down when playing. He is a quick learner and enjoy going to training if he gets treats.

Please come out to the pound and meet Mikey, he would just love to meet you!​


Ownership Criteria

Potential owners must want a dog and be prepared to commit themselves to the dog for possibly up to 15 years. They must have a property that is either fully or partially fenced so as to provide a reasonable sized exercise area. Should they intend to keep the dog outside, a suitable waterproof kennel or kennel/run combination is also necessary. Relevant costs can be discussed with owners.
