The Helping Paws Charitable Trust

Helping Paws is the only Animal Rescue Centre in Mangawhai. We focus primarily on rescuing, rehabilitating, desexing and rehoming over 600 cats and kittens annually. We rescue little ones from across Auckland and Northland, and run an extensive foster network across both regions.
Our Rescue Centre is home to approximately 80 adult cats at any one time. Adult cats take longer to find their forever families, so our commitment to these adults is they will remain with us until their new family eventually comes in to meet them and take them home. Our Rescue Centre also houses a maternity suite for mother cats with newborns, and isolation facilities for little ones with cat flu.
While cats and kittens are at the heart of our operation, Helping Paws is home to a wide variety of rescued animals, including miniature horses, alpacas, sheep and goats who pop over to spend time with our rescued cats every afternoon.
