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​.

​This is  Lucky.  Look at those eyes!

This little boy deserves the very best home we can find. He is a Sharpei/Shepherd mix. He doesn't jump up and is always quietly excited to see you. Goes nice on the lead and is friendly and well mannered towards other dogs, cats and kids.



We need a special home for this girl - her orignal home was not a nice place and Muppet needs a family with a lot of love and patience. Muppet is a Foxy cross type and loves kids and females but can be shy, worried and anxious when a male is approaching her as she is expecting the worst to happen. All she needs is time as she is totally in love with our guys here at the pound.

We will take time to introduce Muppet to her new home and spend as much time as we need to in order to make the transition a happy one for Muppet.



Could you give me a home and a name?

​Young greyhound cross bitch. She has a sweet soft personality. This gorl is realy starting to come out of her shell - showing some real intelligence and trainability

Would make a gorgeous companion or family dog, loves spending time with people. This girl is very special and would also excel at obedience or agility.

Spends her time watching the world go by and would do anything for cuddles, she is good with kids, cats small dogs and all types of people.

Look at this wee guy - super bright personality - about 5/6 months old this guy is a real character. He's going to make a great family dog.
