Who We Are?

Bay of Islands Animal Rescue

‘Never Ending Story’ had been an animal rescue movement since 2017 when its founder moved to the Bay of Islands. Here she and a group of passionate, like-minded people saw the need to make a difference. They joined together to rescue and re-home animals and, in early 2017, formed Bay of Islands Animal Rescue Trust covering all of Northland. The charity re-homes, adopts, fosters and transports an overwhelming number of animals each day including cats, horses, sheep, pigs, cows, ducks, chickens and even rabbits. The organisation still has a huge focus on dogs with an estimated 1500+ expected to be saved by our team each year.

We are proud to say we now have a voluntary team of professionals including highly experienced vets, lawyers, marketers, chartered accountants and website and social media experts working alongside BOIAR, helping us make a difference to thousands of animals lives.

Bay of Islands Animal Rescue will do its best to ensure no healthy dog is ever put down, but we need your help… Any donations, no matter how small, go a long way to helping our work. Donations can be made direct to our Westpac bank account or by credit card through our donate button.
