~ Chained Dogs Rehabilitation and Rehoming NZ ~

Just over three years ago, Chained Dogs Rehabilitation and Rehoming NZ officially opened its doors. The team had been working in rescue for many years but saw there was a great need for a rescue to help dogs in New Zealand who had been chained up, neglected, and/or abused. Many rescues were at capacity and were unable to take these dogs in. It was decided that enough was enough, and so, Chained Dogs Rehabilitation and Rehoming NZ (CDRRNZ) came to be.  

Many of the dogs who find themselves in the care of CDRRNZ often come from difficult backgrounds. There have been many dogs rescued who may have been chained up for most or even all their life. When they arrive at the rescue, they finally have some freedom. Not only this, but CDRRNZ have also helped to rescue from puppy mills and backyard breeders, helping to make New Zealand a better place for our canine friends. 

While the work can be distressing, it’s so important and helps better the lives of many. CDRRNZ are on a mission to empower owners, rehabilitate dogs, and help educate and advocate for animal welfare. Through their work, they have helped to bring happiness to many dogs and have helped people better understand how to properly treat animals.  

The positives the CDRRNZ team receive far outweigh the negative. From having a litter be born at their shelter, seeing dogs find their freedom for the first time, to helping them find their forever home. The dogs have a completely new perspective on life. They are given care, love, and safety, all things they wouldn’t have known until being rescued.  

Being a charity, any amount of help or support can go a long way. Fostering, donating, volunteering, and even adopting can help a lot. The dogs who find themselves in with CDRRNZ have come from difficult backgrounds. It’s so important for them to find a forever home who can provide love and safety. Not only this, but also simply helping to advocate and spread CDRRNZ’s message. 

The team who work at CDRRNZ all love the work they do. They are all passionate and dedicated to helping improve the lives of the dogs they work with. No matter what, they are driven to give these dogs a better life. Whether they need some time and patience as a result of trauma, or some extra love due to neglect, they are right there to ensure that each dog gets what they need.  

Nothing motivates the team at CDRRNZ more than seeing the dogs happy and free. When a dog finds their forever home, the CDRRNZ team are beyond thrilled. Knowing they are going to a loving family after a difficult life makes all the difference.  

The impact that Chained Dogs Rehabilitation and Rehoming NZ have on the dogs they rescue and the greater community is amazing. The dogs they help are forever changed for the better. As well as this, they are helping make New Zealand more aware of animal welfare one step at a time, making it better for everyone.
