93 new kennels
Auckland now has an extra 93 kennels at its animal shelters.
Three of the council’s shelters in Henderson, Silverdale and Wiri have had existing facilities updated to create 93 extra kennels and 17 more exercise yards to cope with ever-increasing demand to house lost and displaced dogs. Mayor Len Brown says the council now has a greater capacity to support dogs and owners and maintain public safety. Unclaimed dogs can also now stay longer in shelters while waiting for a new home.
