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 



​Patch is a cute-as-a-button playful pup. Not sure what her breed is, but she is about 5 months old and is going to be on the tall side.

Patch has a great nature and just loves having her tummy rubbed. She gets on well with other dogs and loves to playShe would suit a family that will give her lots of exercise and lots of playtime. 

If you think you could give Patch a great forever home; please come out to the pound and meet her. She just loves meeting new people.


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.
