Rehoming dogs in Christchurch, New Zealand


Rehoming a dog is always a difficult choice for those who's dog is part of their family. Finding the right people to take over your guardianship can be difficult. You may put his image on TradeMe, and you might have the best luck and find the best home.

People rehome a dog because:

1) incompatible with the family's lifestyle
2) the family moving overseas
3) change of circumstance for the owner
4) behavioural problems - any kind of problem, except being aggressive. 

We are here to help. We will not only find a suitable home, but we will, if need be, train your dog so that he does get a good home.

Rehoming fee: from $250.00 depending on each circumstances

We will come to your home and provide an assessment of your dog. After seeing your dog, seeing him/her interact with the family, getting medical information as well as behavioural information, we will either accept to rehome, and decline the rehoming.We need your dog to fit into our lives while we look for a home.
