Dogs For Adoption

Dogwatch rescues and rehomes dogs and puppies who, through no fault of their own, have ended up in the Christchurch City, Selwyn and Waimakariri pounds. Once they reach the safety of the Adoption Centre they get plenty of TLC as we get to know them and get them ready for adoption.

Helping Your New Dog Settle

This is a wonderful day for you and your dog but the sudden change can be a little stressful. Look at things from your dog’s point of view. He has left his previous home and family or the busy, noisy environment of a shelter or pound and is traveling in a car with people he doesn’t know to a place he doesn’t know. It’s no surprise that he may be a little scared and anxious.

About Dogwatch Sanctuary Trust

Dogwatch rescues and rehomes dogs and puppies who, through no fault of their own, have ended up in the Christchurch City, Selwyn and Waimakariri pounds. After the 7 day holding period the council becomes the legal owner and at their discretion may rehome the dog/puppy or destroy it. Dogwatch is contacted if no one steps forward to claim these dogs and, if we have kennel space, we will take them into our care. Dogs with special needs and extremely young puppies will go into foster homes until they are ready for adoption.

Once they reach the safety of the Adoption Centre they get plenty of TLC as we get to know them and get them ready for adoption. While they are in our care they are vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, desexed and socialised with the other dogs, puppies and people.
