Assistance Dogs New Zealand Trust

Assistance Dogs New Zealand Trust

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 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.
