“All animals deserve to live a happy, long life. We love creatures of all kinds and are passionate to give as many of them as possible a forever home.”
Te Paranui Animal Sanctuary & Permaculture Homestead is a dedicated place to care for animals and show them the love and respect they deserve. All residents and volunteers are contributing to minimise suffering of animals by adjusted their own lifestyle choices to not exploiting any animals for our own food and feeding animal products only to our 4-legged animals if it is an essential part of their natural diet.
Find out who’s currently residing at Te Paranui here. We are constantly expanding and rescuing & rehoming animals in need so check us out regularly!
With our Hounds4Life! program we care for ex-racing greyhounds, while helping to find them suitable loving homes upon retirement. In the EARTHBOUND Kitchen we prepare plant-based delicious meals for our volunteers and teach plant-based nutritions and cooking courses to kids and adults. The Permaculture Gardens are developed by Permaculture experts to create fertile soil for organic produce from our own sources and with minimal impact on the land and environment and locals can grow their own organic veggies in our Community Garden.
