Important information: all dogs in the DCC Pound are held for 7 days. Dogs left unclaimed after 7 days will be put down if not claimed by their owner, adopted via the DCC or rescued by Dog Rescue Dunedin. DRD does its best to rescue every dog available to us but this is not always possible. We rely on having suitable, available fosterers and funding to enable us to care for the dog.
Adopt a dog directly from the DCC
You can adopt a dog directly from the DCC for $188 which includes desexing (within dunedin area only), registration and microchip. If not adopted, they are condemned, or they can be rescued if Dog Rescue Dunedin has the resources available (fosterers and funds). For any questions about any of the dogs currently in the pound, please phone the DCC ph 477 4000 directly, we do not have any further information about any of the dogs.
