Where You Can Adopt dogs In Auckland!

They’ve got a problem: homelessness. You’ve got a problem: doglessness. But together you can get rid of the less turn it into happiness.

In adopting from one of these places rather than getting a dog from a breeder you really are saving lives, helping our community by getting them off the streets—and it is a fraction of the cost. Not to mention you'll have a fluffy pooch that will provide endless love, laughs and loyalty. Be part of the solution.

You don’t know true love until you have a dog in your life—just make sure you’re just got to be ready to commit to a long-term relationship.

We compiled a list of the best places to adopt a puppy in Auckland.



The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA)’s Auckland branch was founded in 1883 and they have been doing their part to encourage the humane treatment of animals and to prevent animal cruelty ever since. You can do your part by adopting a doggy! You can browse dogs on their website but it’s best to go visit them in their site in Mangere. It makes you believe in love at first sight. Just beware of those puppy dog eyes because you don’t have room for all of them.     

Pet Rescue


Pet Rescue is the adoption branch of the charity Paw Justice. They act as matchmakers between unloved and unwanted pooches and people wanting and ready to love a pooch. These doggies come from all walks of life and after a hard start in life they deserve to go to a loving home. You can browse their website to find the right pooch for you. They make it really easy for ya—the dogs are ready to go—desexed, vaccinated, dewormed, deflead and microchipped.

Animal Rehoming

North Shore

Animal Rehoming saves dogs from all walks of life and collaborates with many other organisations to do so. They aim to rescue, rehabilitate and ultimately rehome all the animals that they meet. Help ‘em out a little. All animals are free on the conditions that you provide, love, warmth, shelter, care, attention and food. They rely entirely on donations so if you can’t get a dog for whatever reason you could give a little financially.

The Humane Society Of NZ


The Humane Society of NZ get the strays and stragglers of this city and then do all the checks that they are healthy. Since they do not have any facilities they rely on volunteers to take in the dogs temporarily until a permanent fix can be found. This is where you come in… You could save a life today.
