Dog Rescue Dunedin (DRD) officially began on 9th Dec, 2011 when co-ordinator Dr Jo Pollard signed a formal Memorandum of Understanding with Dunedin City Council`s Animal Control staff.
Dogs picked up by Animal Control only have seven days in which to be claimed. Unclaimed dogs are available to the public for $198 but only some dogs find homes this way.
Dog Rescue Dunedin Charitable Trust now rescues these dogs, provides veterinary care (including desexing), food and home-based foster care and advertises them until they find their “forever homes”. We also run a desexing programme for dogs from members of the public.
Being a young charity we have to work very hard to meet our costs and run our operation. We do not have the financial resources of long-established charities, nor do we own any premises. Dog lovers are encouraged to help us make a big difference to dog welfare in Dunedin.
