Dedicated to providing a safe haven
for homeless and rescued animals.
THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE RESCUED.
Registered Charity No. CC57646, Aotearoa New Zealand
We help as many animals as we can, all ages, breeds and temperaments. We will never turn an animal away if we have the space and time to help them, although we are at full capacity most of the time and really rely on foster homes.
Reviving animals – bringing them back to health – usually starts by neutering, vaccinating and treating any medical issues. We then assess each animal and if needed, train out any unwanted behaviours and teach them the wanted ones. We do also of course spend a lot of time simply giving lots of love, hugs, and cuddles.
The most rewarding part of our work – making sure we find the right person for our animals, giving people all the information and training they need in order to give that animal the best chance at being happy and relaxed in their future homes.
