    Thank you all so much for contributing towards Mauve's surgery! Her operation went great and she is going into foster care to recover for the next 6-10 weeks. This could not have been achieved without your help! Much appreciated, Charlie and team, Pound Paws Rescue :)

  • Surgery Needed for ex Pound dog

      4 August 2023
    Main image

    This beautiful senior Huntaway was found wandering. Was impounded and unclaimed (Photo is in pound).

    She has been named Rain and has been in foster care for a couple of weeks, has gained weight and confidence. She is a beautiful natured girl (Sunshine! 🧡) and is soaking up all of the home comforts.

    Rain has obvious large lumps on her stomach. She needs surgery for Mammary Mass Removal (and spay) - estimated cost $1,500.

    👉 THANK YOU to all of you for your ongoing support. We currently have the highest amount of dogs and puppies in our care, ever.

  • We need help with supplies!

      10 June 2023
    Main image

    👉 The 4 day old Huntaway pups are now 16 days old and they are thriving! 6 girls, 3 boys.

    We need help with supplies!

    Estimate for 9 pups is:

    6kg milk powder per week ($58 for 5kg)

    36 cans starter mousse per week ($50 for a 12 pack)

    Puppy pads

    Baby wipes

    Large breed dry Puppy food

    Plus for our Dunedin foster carer:

    * Easy washable blankets

    * Puppy play pen

    * Plastic pet bed

    https://givealittle.co.nz/org/pound-paws-rescue

    Registered Charity CC60695

    ✨️ Thank you!

    👉 The pups were rescued from a farm. They were going to be killed. We believe this is common practice by many. It's so avoidable. * Did you know that it is legal to "dispose" of pups by shooting them?

    PLEASE break the cycle that is being passed down from generations.

    SPAY & NEUTER.

    Once fully recovered from the operation, your dog will be ready to work again, without the inconvenience of unwanted pregnancies. Makes sense eh!

    While they are at the vet - they can also receive a health check. We receive many ex working dogs that arrive very painful with arthritis and require dental extractions (broken, infected, rotten, pulp exposed).

    🩷 A huge THANK YOU to the foster families (Dunedin, Waimate, Timaru) that have simply been amazing. We are so grateful for you.

  • Adoption Update

      15 May 2023
    Main image

    🩷 This is so special. 🥳 Blue came to PPR as an old boy from a farm with a large lump on his leg. Such a beautiful natured soul. All fixed up and adopted to an amazing home and here is his latest update:

    "Well Blue marked his 4th anniversary with us which we also celebrated as his 15th birthday (there or there abouts based on his approx age when we adopted him). Can't believe how far he's come and how much he still loves life even if he's a lot slower and more tired! He still makes an effort on short walks to say hi to other dogs and give everything a good old sniff. He adores his meals and treats and bones (even if it's more of an effort than before!), but I think what keeps him going is his daily snuggles with us on the couch and the nights we let him sleep beside us in bed ❤️ He's just the most wonderful little soul and I know you'll be so happy knowing he's made it this long living his best life! And knowing Blue, he'll be aiming for another year!"

    Freddie was just 6 weeks old when he needed an urgent inguinal hernia operation. ✨️Thankyou to the vet team that reached out to us, to the foster family that cared for him and to you all that so kindly and quickly donated to save Freddie.

    Freddie has been adopted and is enjoying being a treasured family member:

    "Freddie has settled in so well to our family. Such a social and friendly wee pup. He loves to be outside and adventuring in the garden and going for rides in the cars. He’s very affectionate and enjoys cuddles and pats. We are very grateful to PPR for allowing us to have this gorgeous boy." 🐾

    🩷 UPDATE from the Vets: Surgery went well. He's had a little to eat and is now having a sleep.

    Thanks heaps to everyone that contributed towards his surgery. If there is any over the amount needed, this will go towards our other special needs dogs. Really appreciated.

  • URGENT SURGERY

      28 March 2023
    Main image

    A vet clinic has just reached out for help for a beautiful little 6 week old male pup that was facing euthanasia (duck tolling retriever / beagle / spoodle mix) that has an inguinal hernia and requires urgent surgery - updated: estimated cost $700 to $1,000.

    We have said yes please do the surgery. One of the vet team will foster him for us, once ready, he will go up for adoption. (We are not taking any interest for adoption at the moment).

  • Retired Working Dog - 10 year old Pete

      4 March 2023
    Main image

    Thank you so much for your donations! The money raised so far has paid for Pete's vet bill! He needed treatment for a ruptured ear drum, a grass seed removed from the other ear, xrays, bloods, urine tests, a rotten tooth extracted (a Molar with roots intact - a big job to extract). He is going really well and will soon be up for adoption, seeking a loving retirement home. :)
