Saving Hope Foundation campaigns for the humane treatment of animals in shelter organisations around NZ.

It all started with the charity's namesake, pitbull puppy, Hope...

Hope was a 4-week old female pup at Silverdale Animal Shelter.

She was young, sick and withdrawn, and as deemed part pitbull, was scheduled to be destroyed.

She was malnourished, dehydrated and without medical care and attention. The council-run shelter would not release her for private adoption or to a rescue agency - even with all usual rights waived.

The subsequent campaign on Social Media eventually resulted in Hope being seized by SPCA and fostered with them until old enough for her forever home with one of our trustees.

We campaign for the end of ineffective breed specific legislation and for all shelters to have transparency, accountability and be required to meet a minimum and humane treatment standard, nationwide.

We also rescue litters who are in urgent need, providing foster care and finding homes, and run desexing and responsible ownership campaigns.

Use of funds

Funds raised will be used to rescue, de sex, chip, vaccinationate, de flea and worm treatments, any medical needs required and to re home animals.
