Adopt a Dog

Are you looking for provide a pooch with their 'furever' home?

Adding to your family

Unfortunately, we acquire a number of dogs each year where we're either unable to find the owner, or they choose not to come forward and claim their dog.  However, their loss might be your gain.  We work closely with our colleagues at the SPCA to try and re-home dogs where possible. 

If you're interested in adopting a dog, our Animal Control staff need to see that potential owners can offer a secure, long-term home.  If you are interested, please fill in the following form:


And then, return it to us at:

If you have any other questions about adopting a dog from us, please call either of our teams in Queenstown or Wānaka and we'll do our best to answer what we can.
