Unofficial Tasman Pound Dog's Website

Pound Dogs looking for homes

The Dogs available for rehoming through the Tasman Dog Pound are listed below. All these dogs are offered to their new owners desexed, vaccinated and microchipped, they are good value at $120 for both male and female dogs.

If you want to interview one of these dogs please call the Tasman Council on 03 544 3207. The descriptions below are from my experience of the dogs when taking them out for a walk and should not be considered to be professional advice.

When you adopt a Rescue Dog you know you're saving a life. We've found that there's only one owner for some of our Pound Dogs, if we can't find that one owner, then the Dog has no options left. So, please spread the word, mention the YouTube videos and this website to your friends and family and encourage every-one you know to adopt a Rescue Dog, either direct through the Pound or from the Nelson ARK. The Nelson ARK match unwanted and abused Dogs with young people who have lost their way. Once a Dog is selected by the ARK they don't come back to the Pound.

Jessie is a interesting dog who was surrendered to the Pound because her owner is homeless. She's 6 years old and really good with people she knows but she doesn't instictively trust everyone, people need to get to know her. Jessie she was very close to her owner who rescued her as a 4 month old pup from a bad situation and she really is looking for some-one to love her. She can be a lot of fun, she loves the ball and she loves to run.

Jessie will be best going to some-one with experience of dogs and would be better with older children. She's nice to walk on lead, and she's been both a country and a city dog. Her owner said she was fine with cats and she gets on well with the male dogs at the Pound.

Luna is a young female dog probably around 12 months old. We think she's part lab and she's a bright happy young girl. We took her to the vet for her vaccination this morning and she needed some encouragement to hop in the car but by the time we got to the Vet she was fine. Luna's looking interested in her photo because there's another dog she's never met before just in front of her!

Will add more information on Luna once we get to know her.
