Seeking safe hedgehog homes
News
Thursday, 13 October 2016 00:00

Spring has sprung!

Spring means our recovered hedgehogs are out of hibernation and ready to be released.

We're looking for hedgehog-friendly properties for them. They need fresh water (but not steep-sided ponds they can drown in), somewhere cozy to hide, and to be safe from dogs and traffic. It's also crucial that rat, slug and snail bait is not ultised on these properties.

Handsome Humphrey seeks a safe rural haven
News
Wednesday, 05 October 2016 00:00

Do you have a safe haven for the abandoned rooster we have named Handsome Humphrey?

We have been gaining his trust for some time and we are soon hoping to rescue him from the risk of traffic injury and dog attacks.

He now comes running to our call and makes wonderful chortling sounds of gratitude as he picks through our food offerings.

Humphrey will be treated for worms, lice and mites before his adoption to a slaughter-free, rural property which is safe from wandering dogs, poachers and other predators.

Chocolate and Jasmine only have two weeks left

URGENT PLEASE SHARE: Only 2 weeks left for Jasmine and Chocolate

Chocolate and Jasmine need a home - together or separately. They are sweet-natured, friendly, human-orientated felines, who are both 9-years-old and de-sexed.

Choc and Jazz have been living in the countryside with their loving caregiver since they were kittens but due to ill health and a change of circumstances, he has to move out of his home and is unable to take his lovely cats with him. The poor man is desperate to find a safe haven for them.

Chocolate is a fluffy La Perm breed, whose “perm” didn’t take. This handsome boy loves nothing more than to be cuddled and brushed, and needs a home with plenty of affection. He is very laid back so, once he's settled, a busy environment wouldn’t faze him.

Beautiful Jasmine is an Abyssinian X Siamese girl. She is also extremely affectionate and loving, although she prefers the cuddles to be on her own terms. She is the more independent of the two and may be suited to a quieter home.

Beautiful Blu has left us
News
Saturday, 01 October 2016 00:00

Sad news. Our beautiful Blu was put to sleep yesterday. We always knew his nose cancer was terminal and hoped he would let us know when he was no longer comfortable.

Blu spent his first 10 years with his loving mum, SallyAnn, and his final 11 months in palliative care with us. We knew him from the day he was born to his homeless mother (who is still under our umbrella).

Blu was a mediator, extremely affectionate, playful, active, curious and happy... until yesterday - when his usual enthusiasm disappeared.

SallyAnn spent the day with us so in his last hours, Blu was surrounded by the people he trusted and loved most.

We went on a quick shopping trip so that we could feed our boy a special meal and in the late afternoon we took him to the vet where he peacefully passed away while we soothed and stroked him.

He rested in his favourite spot overnight and today Paul dug a grave for his close mate in a place where Blu watched the activity of the outdoor animals.

Thank you so much to everyone who was a part of Blu's care team - from saying hello, to cleaning his room, to changing his water, to preparing his meals, to giving him affection, to providing his therapies.

Blu was fortunate to have been loved and cared for from his day of birth to the day he died...but will be very sadly missed.

Earthlings Experience
News
Monday, 26 September 2016 00:00

Eleven of Animal Re-homing's dedicated volunteers bolstered the numbers at Auckland Earthlings Experience #5 during the weekend. This global public action centres around the award winning documentary "Earthlings".

Even though it was a cold wet day, there were plenty of curious pedestrians at the busy Queen Street intersection - two of whom spontaneously left the street, donned masks and joined the event to raise awareness of animal suffering - especially in the meat and dairy industries.

Many people were horrified to discover that animals are terrified, brutalised, mutilated and suffer horrific conditions so that human taste-buds are entertained. Most didn't know that male chicks in the egg industry are killed on the day they hatch or that male calves in the dairy industry are slaughtered within days of their birth. Several said they would now consider going vegetarian or vegan.

Many thanks to Daniel's team for organising this important event. We look forward to joining them at the next one.

Tonight gentle Cosmo is on an intravenous drip and fighting for his life as the emergency vet struggles to stabilise his blood glucose levels.

The bills for Cosmo's intensive overnight monitoring and then his recovery at our local vet will be over $2,000. We urgently need your help to meet these costs.

Cosmo is a permanent resident at the shelter due to his heart condition and diabetes. We rescued him from a lethal injection four years ago and he has become a cuddly and beloved pet of Animal Re-homing Charitable Trust and volunteers.

Please donate whatever you can. Many, many thanks in advance.
