Welcome to Ellie's Canine Rescue & Rehome
Thank you for considering adopting a rescue a dog.
Ellie's Canine Rescue & Rehome, is a dog rescue that is not for profit charity created by founders Vicky and Nicole in 2019 (CC56924).
We take in dogs from private surrenders as well as from many pounds across New Zealand.
All of our dogs are assessed before we take them and then carefully placed into volunteer foster homes where they are taught the basics and cared for until adopted.
We are based in Wellington and all of our dogs are desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, flead and wormed before adoption.
We do not have a shelter or base of operations so if you wish to arrange meeting a dog you are interested in please contact us.

Who Funds Us
Ellie's Rescue is a registered charity, a nonprofit organisation that receives no local council or government funding in any way. We rely totally on donations, gifts, private grants and our own fundraising activities for income.
We are committed to helping as many dogs as we can and giving them a second chance. We dream of the day when we can afford to have a plot of land we can call home and work to help even more dogs.
Without the help, support and kindness of so many we could not continue to do what we do.
Thank you to all those who help us with donations, support, sharing/supporting our Facebook page and especially those that foster for us.
We would like to recognize a few companies that have offered us kindness and support, we can wholeheartedly say that we use and recommend these businesses and services.
