Introducing 15-month-old Scottie

Please come back on Thursday to see why we are seeking a home for this lovely young man... where he can safely live out the full 15-20 year length of his natural lifespan.

KIND HEDGEHOG HOMES NEEDED

Introducing healthy, handsome Sam. This big boy has been in our care for several months while recovering from mange, a maggot infestation, dehydration and starvation.

When he has lost a bit of weight and has become accustomed to outdoor temperatures, he will soon be going to a private home to safely live out his natural lifespan.

Please apply to adopt a recovered hedgehog if you are able to offer a fully fenced environment with ground level fencing and gates, no slug, snail or rodent poisons, and no animals who would harm him/her. You will need to provide appropriate hedgehog housing and daily food/water. Thank you.

We look forward to hearing from you at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

THE LAST SUPPER FOR MINNIE

Almost 10 years ago, we were surprised to be asked to take senior cat Minnie into our care by a couple who wanted to become live-in, travelling pet-sitters. It didn't make sense to us to rehome a companion animal in order to care for the companion animals of others... but bookings were in place and the situation wasn't looking good for Minnie, so we welcomed her.

Minnie was already 12-years-old and had severe bronchial issues, so we knew she would be a long term resident, rather than seeking adoption. We soon learned that her asthmatic attacks were triggered by a drop in temperature, so we set up a permanent electric blanket for her - which she sought out if things turned even a little cooler. Although her breathing was always abnormal, she never had a second breathing event. She became our shelter matriarch, full of character, quick to scold and the only cat to sleep on our bed each night.

Today was Minnie's last day with us. She was 22 years, 9 months old. Last cuddles. Last coat brush. Last relax outdoors in the sunshine. Last kisses and last soft words. Last purrs. Last night sleeping on our bed. Last supper.

Our grief is softened in the knowledge that dear Minnie had every need met, was comfortable, happy and loved. It will be sad to not feel the weight and warmth of her body at our feet tonight. We will miss "the old girl" terribly.

Many thanks to the volunteers and assistants who helped us to ensure that Minnie thrived in our care.

23 THOUSAND PEOPLE BYPASSED SASSY - PLEASE SHARE

Six weeks ago we advertised this human adoring 7-year-old and watched with growing hope as thousands of people read about her. Then we waited expectantly.... but no one.... not one single person... expressed interest. This was her advert: https://www.facebook.com/animalrehomingnz/posts/1874664619383025

We know Sassy's not perfect, but she is perfect for someone. Please help us to find the special needs home that awaits her.

With her positive, sunshine personality, it was hard to catch Sassy in this contemplative mood. Her sweet face depicts our sadness that this lovely girl has still not been adopted.

PLEASE SIGN TO BAN THE PUBLIC SALE OF FIREWORKS

The government ignored the last petition, signed by 28 thousand people to ban the public sale of fireworks... citing that it "would affect several small and medium-sized enterprises”.

The natural environment, housing and lives, (human and non-human), are more important than the financial gain for a few fireworks importers/vendors.

After signing, please share this petition widely so that our huge numbers cannot be fobbed off again. Thank you everyone!
