Earthlings Experience
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.

Our permanent shelter boy survived the night and is now staying with our local vet. We visited him today and this brave puss managed a weak purr of gratitude. Sadly, he still isn't out of danger so won't be coming home tonight.

Please urgently donate for Cosmo whose $2,000 care will take our vet bills over $11,000. Huge thanks for your help!

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.

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
Saturday, 27 August 2016 00:00

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 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Even severely ill hedgehogs can be rehabilitated

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.
