Our mission is to enrich the lives of New Zealanders living with a disability.
We are proud to have over 43 graduated dogs throughout the country, helping our clients achieve independence and experience new life opportunities. But sadly, the need for our services far outweighs our current capacity and our waitlist has exceeded 5 years.
Please help us to reduce this wait-time by donating today. Your donation will help us train and graduate more dogs to meet the needs of our ever-growing community.
Donations can be made directly on our website www.assistancedogstrust.org.nz or via this page. You can also sponsor a puppy from just $5 a week and follow their journey as they grow into a fully-trained Assistance Dog. Visit our website for more information.
Since our foundation in 2008, we have been providing purpose-bred and trained Assistance Dogs to enrich the lives of New Zealander's living with a disability. We are internationally accredited by Assistance Dogs International and have NZ government-granted public rights access for all of our dogs. We have over 43 graduated teams throughout New Zealand.
