Impounded dogs and stock

This page lists all of the impounded dogs and stock, and includes a picture of the animal. The animal will be listed for 7 days.

Once an impounded dog has been held for 7 days and not claimed by its owner, it then becomes the property of the Waitomo District Council. 

If your dog is impounded and it's registration is current, it may be quickly returned to you - provided it hasn't been seized because it has attacked a person or animal. 

We only release dogs once all impounding fees and other additional fees (i.e. sustenance) are paid. 

Please contact our Customer Services Team if you are interested in becoming the new owner of one of these dogs as they come available.

To report a dog contact us on 0800 932 4357.










  Available for adoption

This beautiful dog is called Taffy and we would love more than anything to find her a loving new forever-home.

She is a one-year old lab x huntaway cross in urgent need of a new home.

Taffy has been working on her basic commands and lead training but still needs more support.

Taffy loves people and would like a family/owner that will shower her with love or put her to work.

Taffy has not been desexed but is microchipped and wormed.

Taffy has not been tested with cats.

If you would love to provide a loving home for Taffy, please contact us on 0800 932 4357.
