Lets build it, and they will be safe!!!

We are still pinching ourselves, after years of struggling, saving, ups and downs we have bought 157 acres of potential paradise on the Haywards Hills. Its an old felled forest and yeah its scruffy and the driveway is steep and bumpy. But when you get to the top of the hill..it's magic!! Some may see clay and tree stumps, but we see endless acres of enrichment, love and safety.

We can't thank you enough HUHA Community, this land is actually yours, its community land bought with community donations. Our HUHA Volunteers put in the hard yards and over the past 17 years have forged enough momentum to make this dream to protect animals in NZ a reality. But before we get too carried away we need to be clear. We are only half way there! We (with the help of a mortgage) own the land. But we now need to dig deep and bleed some more...we need to develop and build!

Our Vision is simple, modest buildings, ten 6x8(ish) kitset cabins will be fine, surrounded with enrichment yards, walking tracks and nature. The main key is that the animals are warm, peaceful and safe, so they can heal and work towards fining new homes.

So we need you on board. We need volunteers, services, supplies and eeek we need lots more money

Every dollar add up and makes a difference, there will never be a donation too small. We are also happy to talk branding and sponsorship with businesses and we'd love to show you around so you can see the vision first hand.

We have come so far on this journey together, this is the final hurdle, but boy is the pain and sweat is worth it.....because together we are saving so many lives xx

Helping you help animals (HUHA) is a charitable trust dedicated to teaching empathy to the community and providing shelter for those less fortunate animals that struggle to survive in today’s disposable culture.

HUHA receives hundreds of animals every year for so many reasons, from the devastating death of an owner, abandonment, to situations of domestic violence. These animals are placed with, or surrendered to HUHA for medical care, rehabilitation and eventual return or rehoming.

HUHA works with families to find positive outcomes for all animals. Through support and education, we encourage our community to be proactive and take responsibility for the welfare of animals and to understand the importance of each animals’ role, happiness and safety within a family.

HUHA provides a national service. We currently run three animal shelters in the greater Wellington area. We also own a community veterinary clinic in Stokes Valley and an opportunity shop in Otaki.

We are currently developing 157 acres on the Haywards hill as a new purpose build shelter for domestic and farm animals.

Our vision for the new shelter is to work with the community to provide safe and happy outcomes for all animals. We understand the importance around the safe placement of pets. We believe our high standard of care; our experience and compassion would make pet transfers as stress-free as possible. We build our relationships on leading by example and trust.
