Nine pet ewes are in urgent need of a slaughter-free, breed-free home. They are all related, are Suffolk crossed with Perendale and range from 3-7 years.
They may be adopted in groups - provided one group includes 7-year-old Molly and her 4-year-old lambs Camel and Girl.
Their elderly guardian has to leave the property and is extremely worried about the future of her pets. Collection of the sheep is from Thames and you will need to provide a suitable vehicle for transportation.
Sheep responsibility includes providing shelter and shade from weather, drenching, hoof care and having them shorn for the hot months.

Everyone deserves a loving home

We share the belief of this social worker that there is someone to adopt everyone... if only they could be made aware of the waif in need.
Sometimes we make the same decision she did when 'difficult' babies cannot find that special family.
Vernie is a precious big boy
Thursday, 11 August 2016 00:00
We were walking this beautiful young dog today and loving his affectionate and enthusiastic attitude to life. Vernie is a precious big boy - a Mastiff X.
Sadly people have an unjustified nervousness of brindle-coloured dogs, so they are often slow to be adopted. If you know anyone who is looking for a wonderful, friendly companion, please contact us at

If you see a sick or injured hedgehog, put him in a secure box with cat food and water. Cover the box and place him somewhere warm and safe until you contact Hedgehog Rescue New Zealand
Even skeletal hedgehogs with severe mange and maggot infestations can make a complete recovery in experienced hands.

Stop cruel animal experiments. Please sign and share
Wednesday, 13 July 2016 00:00
Please sign and share this petition to stop the University of Otago building a huge facility to torture and kill thousands of animals. While other nations have stopped or are phasing out animal experimentation, why is New Zealand proposing to build more cruel laboratories? We need to come out of the barbarism of the dark ages and use much safer, much more reliable, human-based research for human issues.
Vegan celebration at Hector’s Restaurant, Heritage Auckland Hotel
Tuesday, 12 July 2016 00:00
Trustees Paul and Linda were joined by eight of our most regular dog-walking volunteers for a night to remember - dining at Hectors Restaurant, Heritage Auckland Hotel. The haute cuisine mid-winter vegan buffet exceeded all of our expectations as we savoured dish after fabulous dish.
Award winning chef Jinu Abraham and his team outdid themselves once again! The attentive staff and the general ambience completed the fine dining experience.
Congratulations to the management of Heritage Auckland Hotel for recognising a growing trend and for routinely providing cruelty-free meals and beverages with flair.
Rodeo’s dirty dozen excuses
Monday, 11 July 2016 00:00
All the same excuses are rolled out in New Zealand. Rodeo is legal animal abuse. Stop supporting it and it will die a natural death. There's nothing 'entertaining' about watching terrified animals being brutally bullied.
Sixteen-week-old Niki was taken to a vet clinic for a lethal injection, partly because she wouldn't make a good pig dog. Fortunately the vet nurse knew about Animal Re-homing and urgently contacted us for help. Thankfully, instead of paying for her to be put down, Niki's caregiver contributed towards her vet costs and agreed to sign her over. A few days later our dedicated volunteers Brown and Jardine met the kind nurse half way and brought affectionate Niki to Auckland.
Niki is a sweet and loyal little German Shepherd x Border Collie puppy who loves to be with people and other dogs. Already this intelligent girl can be walked off-leash, comes to the call, sits and lays down. Although still underweight, she is beginning to fill out nicely. She will be a beautiful dog for an active individual, couple or family.
with inquiries and applications for Niki's adoption.
