Choose to adopt

Our aim is to match the right pet to the right family. Please view the cats and dogs that we have available for adoption.

The Humane Society advertises our dogs and cats available for adoption on our website,  Facebook, and Trade Me. Dogs and cats are fostered in private homes, with experienced families, until adoption takes place. This makes it possible for us to put a profile together in order to more successfully match animals to their new owners.

Cat Adoption

All cats are:

  • Vet-checked
  • Vaccinated
  • Desexed
  • Minimum $50 donation required.
  • We ask for a minimum donation of $80 for kittens.
  • Cats do not require property inspection.

Dog Adoption

Most of our dogs come to us from city shelters (pounds), having either been relinquished or as unclaimed strays. We are very proud of the fact that we successfully place well over a hundred dogs each year, which is only made possible through the wonderful work carried out by all of our very willing and hard-working volunteers.

A suitably fenced property is required

One of our volunteers will check the fencing prior to the dog leaving our foster home. Fencing must suit the dog that the prospective new owner wishes to adopt, i.e. right down and into the ground for a small dog and of good height for a small climber or larger dog.

The fencing material must be solid, with no gaps and gates need to be the same height as the fence and right to the ground. Prospective new owners are required to visit the animal in our foster home, to ensure they are compatible.

All dogs in care are registered to the Humane Society who have the right to refuse any prospective adoptive person/family if they feel the placement is unsuitable for any reason.

We transfer registration to the new owner. All new owners receive initial membership to the Society.

All dogs are:

  • Vet checked
  • Vaccinated
  • De-sexed
  • Microchipped
  • Registered prior to adoption.
  • A minimum donation of $200 is required.
