Animal Welfare Pets Awareness

HUHA (Helping You Help Animals) Charitable Trust, New Zealand's leading NO KILL animal shelter urgently needs rebuilding!

Our Otaki Shelter (we have leased for 4.5years) has been sold and is set to be bulldozed to make way for a quarry. We have been served our eviction notice and need to be relocated by mid August 2016.

Thankfully we planned ahead and have bought our very own 18 acres on SH1 Manakau just north of Wellington, and we are very grateful to have achieved a recourse consent, but our land is a blank canvas and we need your help to build a facility on the bare land, so the animals that come into our care can have comfort, love and sanctuary whilst they wait for the chance of the bright future that they so deserve.

HUHA is leading the way in Animal Welfare expectations in NZ and we are so incredibly proud of what we - together with with NZ communities have achieved, not just for the animals, but for the people too. We want to build a hub of inspiration and goodness for everyone to visit and enjoy. We want to lead by example and show New Zealanders what is possible if we all work together.

We are 100% voluntary run. And it is due to the endless passion and drive of these volunteers and our followers, that HUHA is able to continually think outside the square and make things happen - because to us every animal is worth it.

We are used to doing the saving, but this time it is us that needs rehoming and we are asking for all of you to get behind us and help. Because together we can make an impact on the world, and together we can save lives ...

PIC 9years ago, Laurie the ex circus monkey helped us to build him a new life at our HUHA Kaitoke Shelter. Where he still lives happily today.

HUHA is New Zealands Leading NO KILL Animal Shelter. We work tirelessly to educate, problem solve and save lives within communities. HUHA is completely voluntary no one gets paid - all donations go toward saving lives.

We currently run two shelters housing hundreds of homeless animals. The original HUHA is in Kaitoke, Upper Hutt and cares for wonky farm animals, ex circus and zoo monkeys and rehabilitates native wildlife. Our current Otaki shelter is leased and houses dog and horses then re home's them into safe and loving homes.
