Hello and welcome
We are a New Plymouth based charity that believes dogs provide benefits to the physical and mental health of everyone in the community.
This doesn’t mean that everyone has to own one but our aim is to try and give access to everyone who needs some doggy love.
We have a number of programs we will be rolling out over the next few months.
Keep up to date with what we are doing through our website, Facebook page, and Instagram!

Enhancing the lives of dogs, their owners and the community.
Our Aim 2022
In 2022, we are going to continue with our two monthly Barkets as a regular dog community event and build our team of fosters and rehoming coordinators. Our main focus will remain the rehabilitating and rehoming of those dogs that come into our care. Alongside this we will continue to rehome on behalf of owners. This is where a dog stays in its own home where it is happy and comfortable, while we advertise on behalf of the owner and then support the owner through the rehoming process.
As normal we will continue our fundraising activities which, along with your support, allow us to do what we do.
Where do my contributions go?
Your donations will directly help dogs. When we take a dog on, we often need to pay for vaccinations, health checks, desexing, pound fees, food, and training. We want to give each dog the best possible chance of finding the right forever home, and this means putting the hard work in during the time they are with the Trust.
As well as helping dogs that have been surrendered to the Trust, we want to help dogs and their owners in the community that are doing it tough. Whether it be to help fund a training course or supporting a desex and chip campaign, they all benefit the wider community and result in responsible and positive dog ownership.
We also need to fundraise for fuel vouchers for our foster carers and volunteers so that they are not out of pocket when they help us out.
