Adopt a Dog

Regrettably we acquire a number of dogs each year that we have been unable to find an owner for or they simply do not come forward. We work closely with our colleagues at the SPCA to try and re-home dogs where possible. 

Our dog control staff will need to see that potential owners can offer a secure, long-term home. If you are interested in adopting a dog please fill in the following form and return to us at

Call us on 03 441 0499 (Queenstown) or 03 443 0024 (Wanaka) if you have any other questions about adopting a dog from the Council.
