How to help

If you want to help there are lots of ways to get involved

It’s much easier for people to leave their abuser when they know their pets are safe.

Donating monthly to Pet Refuge means you are making a pledge to care for the pets affected by family violence, so we can provide them with a warm and secure place for them to stay.

Sign up today to support our mission to provide temporary accommodation for pets affected by domestic violence, so their owners can escape abuse.

While our love is free, the cost of caring for pets affected by family violence is not.

Donations – large or small – will help us keep these adored family members safe, healthy and cared for. Please give now and support our mission to provide temporary accommodation for pets affected by domestic violence, so their owners can escape abuse.

Leaving a bequest to the Pet Refuge New Zealand Charitable Trust means you can make a lasting difference.

A bequest is a gift made in a person’s will. It can include money, shares, real estate or anything else that they would like to pass on when they pass away.

Dedicating a bequest to Pet Refuge will ensure we are able to care for vulnerable pets and make a difference to the lives of families who live with violence.
