Offer to foster animals and to socialise stray and timid cats
Please let us know if you are in a position to foster, tame and/or help timid animals gain confidence prior to their adoptions. They will usually be cats and dogs; although it’s possible some grazing animals may require temporary shelter too. Please let us know what your preference and experience has been with all creatures’ great and small up until now.
Become a volunteer (Minimum age 16)
Please offer your time and energy to help us with animal care and the tasks of running a busy shelter and rescue organisation. You may be doing housework, cuddling animals, walking dogs, working in the office, crumbling crackers, transporting goods, helping with fundraising, picking grass, rescuing roadside chickens, picking up dog poop, cleaning out a chicken coop, holding animals who need medical attention, replacing litter trays, assisting at a cat colony...the list is endless.

Offer to collect and transport animals around the North Island
Please offer to help to sensitively transport animals and/or related paraphernalia to new or foster homes around Auckland and throughout the North Island. Sometimes you may deliver a mouse or a frog, or at other times, pigs, sheep or peacocks. There may also be food, cages and medicine, etc to transport. You will need to provide your own vehicle.

PACK RAT STEW & OTHER TALES by New Zealand author Don Batley
The 32 pages of quirky, rhyming animal stories in this A4 sized paperback book will appeal to all age groups, including young-at-heart adults.
The beautiful coloured illustrations of Chris Schipper will delight even the youngest of children.
Pack Rat Stew will be a wonderful gift for the kids in your life or for libraries, schools and kindergartens. Please spread the word.
This special book was written and donated by Kiwi author Don Batley (pictured). He dedicated it to his much-loved friend Bandit the cat. Don has been actively supporting our work with animals in strife since early 2006 when he adopted five piglets from us who are happily living out their natural lifespans on his property. Thank you Don – we appreciate you so much!
Don is unlikely to produce a re-run of his book, so this is your last chance to get copies. Pack Rat Stew is available at this price only while our stock lasts. Please order today!
We are hoping our supporters will buy the books in groups of 3 or more to quickly raise the urgently needed funds and to save us postage & packaging costs. However, we welcome orders for smaller numbers too.

NOTE: Special thanks to Karen Wheeler at S.G. Digital Ltd in Auckland for donating enough Animal Re-homing business cards for inclusion with each book.
Thank you so much to each of you for making donations and participating in our fundraising campaigns. Your help is life-saving and enables us to continue our work.
