How to help
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 help us complete the build of the shelter and continue our mission to keep pets safe while their owners 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 so we can complete the build of the shelter and provide all the things pets in refuge need, such as transport, bedding, nutritious food, healthcare and enrichment.
Fundraise for us
If you would rather give your time, effort and ideas, we would appreciate any fundraising efforts to help us support pets affected by family violence.
We can work with you to develop your fundraising event or initiative. We can supply an informational booklet and collection buckets, and possibly a speaker to tell the Pet Refuge story and share how supporting us will make an impact.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Pet Refuge.
The Pet Refuge shelter will be closed to the public, to ensure the safety and security of the pets we care for and their owners. If you are wanting to volunteer in any other capacity, please email email@example.com with your name, number, location and how you would like to help.
We will be in touch with future volunteer opportunities.
Make a bequest
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.
