At Pixie's we rescue and rehabilitate dogs New Zealand wide, to give them a second chance for a happy home. Have a look at a few of our Rescues and how much love they have to give!

Most of the dogs staying with us get to interact and play with other dogs, humans and kids on a daily basis. So are well socialised and used to living in a family situation. But like most rescue dogs they can usually use a bit of training, which we'll be happy to give you advise on!

Charmaine Wolmarans founded Pixie’s Animal Rescue in memory of her daughter Merzanne, who was killed while cycling aged 18. It was Merzanne’s dream to start an animal rescue and Charmaine has dedicated her life to fulfilling this dream.

Pixie’s will never turn an animal in need away, often taking in those that have suffered the most extreme abuse and neglect and would have no chance of survival and a better life without our team. Since we started our work, we have cared for more than 800+ dogs and cats and re-homed them to loving families.

Charmaine is supported by her husband Dirk and an amazing team of dedicated workers and volunteers who have become like family. As a supporter we consider you to be an essential and loved member of the Pixie’s family too.
