Register to take part in the ADNZT Street Appeal and help enrich the lives of New Zealanders living with a disability. 

The Assistance Dogs New Zealand Trust Annual Appeal is the biggest fundraising event of the year and we need your help to make this year BIGGER and BETTER than ever! We are aiming to raise a massive $75,000 which is the cost of breeding, training, qualifying and supporting one of our life-changing dogs throughout their working life. 


You can make a difference for New Zealander's living with a disability by volunteering just 2 hours of your time! Simply fill in the form below to register and your local Area Coordinator will be in touch to choose a time and location that works for you.



PLUS! This year is even more exciting because you can bring your own four-legged fundraisers along for the fun. Well-behaved dogs that meet our criteria are now allowed to collect at certain sites and we would love for your furry friend to get involved. CLICK HERE to see if your dog is suitable to join this event or call us on 0800 966 342 if you have any questions.

We have sites booked in the following regions:

  • Auckland 

  • Hamilton

  • Tauranga

  • Wellington

  • Christchurch 

If you live in a different region but would still like to be involved, fill in the form below or email with a suggestion for a local, high-foot traffic site. (Tip: supermarkets, Mitre 10/Bunnings, busy malls, town markets or community events are a great place to start). We are able to book a site and send a collection pack to you. Be aware that you will be in charge of the site for the full day. 

What happens when I sign up?

  • Firstly you will be added to our mailing list and receive a confirmation and welcome email from ADNZT.

  • You local Area Coordinator will be in touch in September (at the latest) to roster you onto a site. Don't panic if you don't hear from them straight away! We are still finalising sites throughout August and may need to wait to finalise your timeslot.  

  • If you have any specific requirements or questions, feel free to email at any time. 

  • On the day, you will be wearing an ADNZT bib and be given a bucket and stickers. If your dog is with you, remember to bring water, treats, bedding/towel, a short lead and a toy. We have tried to select sites and times that will have the highest foot-traffic to make the most of your valuable volunteer hours. We hope you have fun and thank you for every dollar you raise! It makes such a difference.
