Pound Paws Rescue, based in Oamaru, North Otago (we cover further afield).

We are a not for profit organisation and are all volunteer workers, (we are not the pound). We are totally self funded and rely on fundraising efforts and donations from the public.

The dogs that come into our care come from a variety of places - pounds, farms, vets and the community. Our dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, registered, flea/worm treated. We ask for a donation towards these costs - Adults $250, Puppies $290, Seniors - varies.

All of our dogs are housed in foster homes (we do not have a kennel/adoption facility). We are always on the look out for good foster homes that are securely fenced, have someone home part of the day, have good dog experience and use fear/force free training methods. We supply the food, blankets, crate, vet care, and support.

We are looking for extra special permanent homes that are willing to go the extra miles and are 100% committed to provide an enriched, happy, stable home life. We have an adoption process, which includes an application form, property visit (safe, secure fencing is super important), back ground checks. All going well, we then arrange a meet and greet with the dog. (We do not send the dogs away on transporters). We never rush our dogs into new homes. We understand that adoption is not for everyone, the most important thing is to find the dog that best suits your (and the dogs) needs.

Renewing our Givealittle page as per charity rules  14 December 2020

Posted by: Pound Paws Rescue

We are renewing our Givealittle page as per charity rules.

We continue to do our rescue and rehoming work (we are all volunteers). We work out of foster homes and do not have adoption/kennel facilities.

Donations are used to run our rescue (along with our own fundraising efforts), especially for dogs needing extra than the usual vet work. Usual vet work is spay/neuter, vaccinations, chipping. Extra vet work is dogs need help with xrays, surgeries, infections, gastro, physio, behaviourial support. We also help spay bitches in the community that are of high risk of producing unwanted litters. Feel free to ask us any questions, also visit our facebook page to see latest updates:

Thank you for your continued support!
