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 


​Meet Pollyanna

Pollyanna is a Greyhound X, maybe with a little Whippet in her, and is an ex pig dog. We're unsure of her age, but she has had puppies.

Polly was very underweight when she arrived at the Pound, and a bit shy. However she has put on weight and her cheeky personality has shone through 🙂

She does have a high prey drive, so a new family with no cats is essential. Polly loves going for walks, and loves a brush but doesn't like bath time!

She will not be going back to the pig-hunting life, she needs a well fenced property, and we're sure she will take to inside life like a duck to water.

If you think you can give Pollyanna the new life and family she needs; then come on out to the pound and meet her.

Phone 07 348 4199 for more information, or visit her at the pound between 2 - 4.30pm Monday to Friday. Her impound number is #104033



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.
