Adopt a Dog

​​​Council's Animal Control team manage an Adopt a Dog programme to find new homes for dogs that have a suitable temperament for rehoming. 

Criteria apply and there is a $50.00 re-home fee. All dogs are de-sexed before they leave the Pound at no additional cost to the new owner.

The pound is in Whakauru Street, in Tokoroa. Pound hours are 8am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday​.

​Black labrador cross - 2.5 years old - super friendly towards people and other dogs. Licorice is lovely on the lead and gets on with any/all other dogs. The photo does not do her justice she is gorgeous in real life - come down and meet her :-).

Our two 'Blues' are both males and both extra friendly - and not related that we know of! Either would make a great companion or f​arm dog they are both energetic but well mannered.
