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.
