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 re-home fee (see Fees and Charges). 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​.


Sam is an older gentlmen ( 8years ) with lots of love to give his new owner. He is a Rotty cross Lab mix. De-sexed, registered and vaccinated. He is waiting for afamily to love and a warm fireplace to sit in front of. Pics to come but come dowm to the pund for a meet and greet if you're looking for a new buddy.

Male Australian Blue Heeler mix. This dog has a very soft personality, will not jump up or even bark. Currently having some on lead training and is doing very well. Will be neutered and chipped prior to going to new home. No food, dog or people aggression.




​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 :-).

Flossy is a lovely Staffy/Lab mix. She is a medium size girl with a heart of gold. Currently learing about being on the lead, she doesn't jump up and is alwasy up for a snuggle. Good with food and other dogs.
