HOW YOU CAN HELP
All Paws Rescue is entirely run by volunteers who work tirelessly every day of the year, helping those in need no matter the breed, all of our animals are placed in foster homes, as we do not have a shelter, here they gain a loving and safe home in preparation for adoption. We do not receive any government funding and solely rely on our supporters and volunteers to donate or help us fundraise to continue the rescue work we do.
Fostering is rewarding and definitely a life saving way you can help animals. By offering to foster it allows us to save animals that might otherwise have no place to go. It also offers a free a position in a pound, shelter or emergency temporary foster that can be used by another animal in need.
At All Paws Rescue NZ - Helping those in need no matter the breed, we provide veterinary care, food, supplies and support, you provide a safe and loving home. You choose the foster options that best suit your lifestyle. Can you offer emergency fostering of 1-2 days or 1-2 weeks, or fostering during certain times of the year, for weeks or months, can you offer fostering through to adoption? Adoption on average takes about 2 months to years in some cases, not one is the same, some get adopted faster than others. You tells us what you can offer and we try match that information with the animals in need. Which can you foster, dogs or puppies?
