Our Story

We began with a goal of 20 adoptions. Once we hit 21, we knew we were here to stay. 


Fast forward to present day, we have a network of foster homes based from Whakatane to Tauranga, and where possible, support the community with resourcing, education and desexing.

Behind the Moggies

Working alongside our local vets, fellow rescues and pet food Bank, we aim to assist who needs us most. 

We navigate Moggies around our families, work, and day to day lives, with each of us bringing a different skill set and dynamic to the team. We're by no means experts in the field - that's where our incredible vets step in - but rather represent the power of the everyday individual to take responsibility and drive change.

Everyone can make a difference to somebody. If you're passionate about animals and keen to be involved get in touch.

Our Values. Care. Community. Grattitude.

Our Values


We take in the vulnerable and care for them as our own.


Our focus is on providing them with the social and physical rehabilitation they need to thrive in their lives outside of the Rescue.


As our operation is small we get know each and every animal to best match their personalities with appropriate homes.


We started Moggies believing animals were a shared responsibility and are happy to share our resources, advice and time, to support members of the community wanting to make a positive difference for them.


Additional funds are directed into community desexing, food packages and basic supplies such as flea and worm treatments, bedding and toys.


We are deeply grateful for the support of our amazing vets, adopters and the generousity of the people who believe in the cause.


No donations are used to pay for our time, run vehicles or purchase supplies not used in the Rescue.


What we put in we give willingly and where we have extra we share.

The Big Picture.

We’re all in this together.


Community support, sharing resources and education are all key to the change we need to see.


That change starts with people like you. Join us on the Moggies journey and help us help them together.

It takes a village.
