Welcome to Husky Rescue NZ

We Rescue, Desex, Rehabilitate, Retrain and Rehome huskies / mals and occasionally other related breeds in New Zealand.

for adoption dogs and info.

Dogs that come in need desexing, vaccinating, microchipping and to be registered. As well as some serious extra vet bills to treat other problems, like Cruciate ligaments..... $2500 minimum! Plus we need to transport them around the country.

Imagine if everyone on the page donated $ would be incredible.

Did you know our Founder is our main financial contributor? Michelle set this up in 2009 and has been the main financial contributor since. Now she works with the huskies daily to get bookings that financially benefit the rescue dogs. As well as running the new Christchurch base.

Dogs for adoption will be listed on the website when ready.

Updates: Goal $32,000 per month. March $18,000, April $26,000  6 May 2020

Posted by: Husky Rescue NZ

Update: Goal $32,000 per month.

Thank you and please keep it up!

Since we started this campaign you helped us raise about $18,000 in March (pays out end April) and about $27,000 in April (pays out end May) between Give a little, Text to give and Bank donations.

It isnt enough to pay everything but it has bought us more time thanks to some patience with invoices we owe.

We have taken advice and paid the important things that we can to keep us afloat, keep the dogs safe and reduce financial duress.

*Rent is paid till 20th May now and we will be paying till end of June.

*We are all good for food for the next 3 months - between buying some, your donations, Royal Canins donations and assuming our usual monthly Royal Canin donation keeps coming through plus a few regular food donors.

*The text to give service is paid for the whole year now so we can keep using that.

*The vets have been paid off too.

*All development of the new site has been stopped and invoices slowly being paid.

But with no reserve and invoices owing over 50k (not including amounts owed to board) we are definitely not out of the woods yet.

Rent each month to house these dogs is currently dependent on your donations. And that is not even the rest of the costs.

Every month a decision has to be made for the next 3 months, and this month we are going out on a limb just because we need more information about whats happening out there with level changes.

The reality is with many of our previous paid booking clients going out of business or reduced hours or going work from home permanently, our ability to earn our own funds like we have in the past is not going to bounce back any time soon. The future may mean we may have to downsize to keep our costs under what we get in donations a month, making us solely reliant on your help. But we cant do that instantly as we have dogs to re-home and advise to seek as we see what life brings us each month.

So thank you!, and please keep it up!

If we hit our target each month it would mean a continued safe place for these dogs, we are currently running at a deficit but we still have hope.

You can help by donating and sharing and joining our facebook page.
