Council's Compliance team manage an Adopt a Dog programme. Every dog that enters the Pound is assessed by Compliance Officers for its suitability to be rehomed. This task is taken very seriously and Officers go out of their way to find the right owner, for the right dog. Decisions made to rehome a dog to a successful candidate is never based on a 'first serve' basis. The successful candidate will be the owner that can provide the home and environment that the dog needs according to their size and breed characteristics.
The pound is in Whakauru Street, in Tokoroa. Pound hours are 8am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
Criteria apply and there is a re-home fee (see Fees and Charges). All dogs are de-sexed before they leave the Pound.
There are currently no dogs for adpotion. Check back again soon.
