Dogs for adoption

If you would like to meet any of our dogs please email or phone. If you wish to adopt 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.

Each dog for adoption has been registered, microchipped and vaccinated and desexed (or will be desexed as soon as possible). We ask adoptive owners for a donation of $230 towards these costs.

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

If you are after a particular type of dog please let us know and we can help to keep an eye out for something suitable. Purebred dogs are not common in the pound however.
