Please vote for Humane Society Rescue Dogs


 Masterpet is sharing their Christmas cheer with pets who are homeless . They are seeking 10 deserving charities to receive an amazing Santa Sack from Masterpet’s Grotto (worth up to $4,000).

This would mean wonderful treats for Humane Society rescue dogs - and the ones we will save in 2017. It would also free up resources so we can continue to focus on supporting desexing - and can continue to play a role in breaking the cycle of unwanted animals ...being neglected, abused, and abandoned.

Please vote for the Humane Society and help us provide a much happier Xmas and New Year to animals who deserve to experience human peace, love, and goodwill..

How Can You Help?

The Humane Society of New Zealand consists totally of dedicated volunteers. We need your help to continue our services.

Desex your pet

There are not enough homes now for pets, so why produce more? The Humane Society of NZ has desexing of pets as one of it's core aims.


Assist us with answering phones, property checks or transport. Please Note:  We have no facilities and only foster homes look after our fostered animals.


Become a foster home for our rescued dogs. If you have some experience with dogs, a securely fenced property and some time to spend, you can assist with the rehabilitation of our rescued dogs.


Donate your time by joining our telephone roster to assist in taking calls from the public. Make regular donations to the Society for its ongoing work. The Society receives no funding and relies on donations to continue.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance towards the cost of desexing your pet is available in cases of genuine hardship.

To enquire about an application for assistance to desex your pet, please phone or write to the Humane Society, or fill in the online application form located under "desexing".
