Dogs Available to Adopt


Each dog available has been registered, microchipped and vaccinated and desexed (or will be desexed very soon). We ask adopters for a donation of $230 towards these costs.

If you would like to meet any of our dogs please click on the 'Enquire about adoption' button below the dog's listing and fill out the required form or email info@dogrescuedunedin.co.nz for further information.   After meeting the dog if you then wish to proceed with adopting him/her we will do a property inspection and then the dog will have a week's trial at your place.

PLEASE NOTE: You need a fully fenced section to adopt a dog from us.

Adopted dogs are supplied with a pack of goodies from Mighty Mix.
