Adopting a dog
Suitable dogs that have been abandoned or surrendered can be adopted.
When adopting a dog it is important to match the dog to your family circumstances.
- Do you want an active dog or a quiet one?
- What size dog do you want?
You also need to consider the environment the dog will live in, and your ability to exercise and care for the dog for the next 15 years.
There will be a fee payable for dogs adopted through Hauraki District Council and this will be discussed further in the application process.
If you are interested in adopting a pound dog, please complete the Pre-Adoption Application form and we can add you to our watchlist, and if a dog becomes available that meets your requirements we will contact you.
