Zack....missing for two weeks, lost in the bush having been spooked by thunder. He needs our help.

Main image

Remember Zack who was found after being missing for two weeks? He was lost in the bush having been spooked by thunder at his home.

He needs our help.

Found unable to move stuck in a creek at the bottom of a ravine Zack has lost over 10 kilos and is extremely weak with some organs not fully functioning. He also has pressure sores with badly infected open wounds on his legs from sitting on his legs in water for so long.

Zack is hoping to make a full recovery and he has two younger human brothers at home waiting for him.

His family are facing a substantial vet bill which is still rising - let’s help them out.

About us

Every little helps. Charity: CC53465

Use of funds

The funds will be used to help pay Zack's ever mounting vet bills.

Any surplus will be split between the Waiatarua Volunteer Fire Brigade and Rottweiler Rescue.

Hey, just wanted to let you know that Zack had the last of his stitches removed today!!! Woohoo, he has a few meds still to argue with his mum about but no more vet visits planned - ever!!!!

Now he can concentrate on getting back to his full healthy self, inside and out.
