COME TO THE RODEO PROTEST ON NEW YEARS DAY 2021

ROLL UP! ROLL UP! FOR THE CRUELEST SHOW ON EARTH...

Warkworth Rodeo Protest
New Years Day 2021: 11am - 12pm
Warkworth Showgrounds
State Highway 1, Warkworth
(Entrance opposite Hudson Road)

Calling all animal lovers to start 2021 by joining the crowd peacefully protesting against animal abuse. Bring nothing but friends. Wear black clothing. See you there!

The footage in this video was taken during the 2014/15 rodeo season. It's not surprising that high definition cameras are no longer permitted at most rodeo in NZ. The Rodeo Association does not want the public to know how animals suffer for this disgraceful "family entertainment". Don't buy tickets, don't offer sponsorship. Come to the protest so the violence, the bullying, the injuries, the deaths and the terror are stopped! Thank you.

*** Prefer to carpool? We have a convoy leaving from Browns Bay at 10am. If you would like to be part of it, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

"Choose Me" - Songs to Save Animals

Whatever you choose to do in 2021, please let this be one of the best choices you make.

TIGER IS BACK

When we heard a cat screaming out at 10.15pm, we rushed through the shelter to see who was so upset... but all of the waifs were calm.

The loud and desperate call increased, so we checked outside... and there was Tiger... rushing into our arms, smelling of musty rags, with sunken haunches and full of loving cuddles and head-bunts. His upset digestion is normalising now... along with our aching hearts.

Thank you so much to everyone in the community who rushed into action with us when Tiger became the first cat to ever chew and squeeze his way through wire to become lost.

Pages Design & Print immediately created and printed 2,000 "Lost Cat" flyers which wonderful volunteers quickly distributed to letterboxes and noticeboards; social media got behind the search with thousands of shares; vet clinics, libraries, shopkeepers and members of the public had us setting our traps and checking out unknown cats all over the North Shore.

With so much cat hatred across the country, it has been heartwarming to see cat lovers come out in force for Tiger.

Huge thanks to you all - for every Facebook like and share, every kind word, every text and phone call, and every flyer taped to a fridge or pantry door for reference in homes across East Coast Bays. You are a formidable team... and we are deeply grateful for your support.

SASSY HAS NEVER HAD A LOVING HOME

Inquiries and applications to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We are seeking a great and understanding home for Sassy where she will be the only beloved animal companion; a place where she will receive plenty of attention, warmth and company... and never be caged again.

Sassy would enjoy a good sized, securely fenced property and the freedom to roam indoors or outdoors as she wishes.

She is an affectionate 6-year-old Staffy x Boxer who is now spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped and registered.

After years of lonely imprisonment, Sassy has waited her entire life for a kind and wonderful home - so we are very excited about taking her to meet applicants. Sassy is currently living in Auckland.

If you have questions or would like to be considered for Sassy's adoption, we look forward to your e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thank you.
