Since 1997, we’ve supported shelter animals by ensuring they eat precisely balanced nutrition 365 days a year.

The result? A growing number of happy, healthy pets going home every year.



We proudly partner with these organisations to support animal welfare in New Zealand

Happier, healthier, more adoptable

Along with expert care from shelter staff, Hill’s pet foods can play a vital role in helping pets like Skylar find their forever homes. When you purchase Hill’s, you help us provide premium nutrition to thousands of shelter pets across the country, 365 days a year.


Every Tail is Worth Sharing


Here are just some of the pairings made possible thanks to loving shelter care and Hill’s nutrition.

Part of your community

Nutrition is just one aspect of a pet’s wellbeing. Animal shelters provide much-needed housing, medical care, and compassion to pets in need.

Our partners live the same mission every day, making sure these animals get the best shot at a better life.

Some additional services your local animal shelter may also provide include:

  • Veterinary Services
  • Behavioural Consutations
  • Training
  • Community Education Programs
  • Pet Food Pantries

More ways you can help

Even if you’re not in a position to adopt a dog or cat, there are several ways you can help your local shelter throughout the year.

Fostering a dog or cat helps shelters save space while socialising a pet in a loving environment. Many organisations will pay for vet care, while others provide much more, such as food and bedding. Call your local shelter ahead of time to see what their policy is..
