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.

The Tasman Pound Dogs are sponsored by The Vet Centre (Gladstone Road, Richmond).

Neither Diesel or Ingmar are at the Pound but I;ve added tme to this page as they are both in urgent need of a home. If you're interested in Diesel contact details are on his Trade Me advert. If you're interested in Ingmar please contact the ARK.

Diesel is around 5 years old, probably a bulldog x (but we're not sure) who through no fault of his own needs to find a new home. Diesel was at the Pound 4 years ago (when he was just a young fella), he was adopted and stayed with the family for four years.

Unfortunately they can no longer keep him, but he is still with them while we try to find another home for him. We feel so sorry for Diesel, it's hard to lose those you love especially when you're older. The video shows him going for a walk with his dogwalker Maryanne, at Doggy Daycare and with his old family. Contact details are on his Trade Me advert.

Ingmar is a young fellow only around 6 months old. He's been chosen by the ARK as a therapy dog for their programme and his course starts soon. Ingmar is currently at the kennels. It's so sad, he's spent most of his young life in kennels. He needs to find a foster home asap, or even better a permanent home. Contact details are on the ARK's webpage.
