About HUHA

Proud partner of

Helping you help animals

At PD Insurance we believe every animal has the right to be cared for.

As pet parents ourselves, we understand the importance of the animal-human bond and believe all animals deserve our love. That's why we proudly partner with Helping You Help Animals (HUHA), New Zealand's leading no kill shelter dedicated to finding homes and foster care for a multitude of homeless, abandoned, seized and abused animals.

We don't just talk the talk - we put our money where our mouth is.

A portion of every PD Insurance premium is donated to HUHA to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome hundreds of cats, dogs and other animals every year.

HUHA was founded in 2008 by Carolyn Press-McKenzie. She too believes everyone is responsible for the welfare of animals, and with more education we're better able to achieve this. When animals are at risk, HUHA calls communities to action. Together, they save lives through the network of HUHA's animal sanctuaries, adoption program, vet clinic, community outreach and political advocacy work.

HUHA continues to make its mark in New Zealand and now has four animal sanctuary locations, plus a dedicated team of volunteers helping to support HUHA's work. To date, it has assisted thousands of animals - dogs, cats, horses, native birds, livestock and more (even ex-circus monkeys!).

PD Insurance is committed to contributing to HUHA's programs and, in turn, the happy and safe existence of thousands of New Zealand animals. When you support us, you support HUHA.
