At Te Paranui we love creatures of all kinds, and we are always expanding our family with more animals that need a caring home.
Currently, our non-human residents include 5 dogs, 1 cat, 6 chooks, 3 ducks, two donkeys, a pony, two mother alpacas with their two young babies and Pepper the baby pig.
Our new Hounds4Life program is designed to care for ex-racing greyhounds, while helping to find them suitable forever-homes. The greyhounds will enjoy a comfortable living environment, regular exercise in our custom 200 m dog run and paddock, and healthy whole plant meals until they are placed with an appropriate family.
Children may “adopt” a greyhound, visiting their dog at Te Paranui and helping to care for it, until eventually they may be able to take it home.
