Vol­un­teer for an­i­mals

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

An­i­mal lovers will don cute and furry cos­tumes this month to raise money for an­i­mal ad­vo­cate group SAFE.

Vol­un­teers will be rat­tling buck­ets for the an­nual street ap­peal on De­cem­ber 19 and 20.

Last year SAFE raised more than $300,000 for hu­mane ed­u­ca­tion pro­grammes and aware­ness pro­grammes about an­i­mal abuse.

This year money will go to­wards ed­u­ca­tional re­sources, re­search and teach­ing ma­te­ri­als, cam­paigns and web­site de­vel­op­ment.

“We’re call­ing on com­pas­sion­ate peo­ple to help SAFE reach its goal of 1200 col­lec­tors,” says ap­peal co­or­di­na­tor Sacha Dow­ell.

“Dress­ing up as your favourite bear, bunny or rein­deer is en­tirely op­tional but loads of fun.”

To vol­un­teer go to www.safe.org.nz or phone (03) 379-9711.
