SPCA’S city link

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Coun­cil­lor Cathy Casey is the Auck­land Coun­cil SPCA Am­bas­sador.

The 130-year-old char­ity has a long his­tory of car­ing for the city’s an­i­mals and the sup­port it has re­ceived from Auck­lan­ders through­out its his­tory is a true tes­ti­mony to the high re­gard in which the or­gan­i­sa­tion is held, SPCA Auck­land ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Bob Ker­ridge says.

‘‘With the ap­point­ment of coun­cil­lor Cathy Casey, an ac­knowl­edged an­i­mal wel­fare ad­vo­cate, we will be as­sured that, when the op­por­tu­nity arises, the voice of the city’s an­i­mals will be heard loud and clear.

‘‘The po­si­tion is of an honorary na­ture and will not im­pinge on the nor­mal op­er­a­tion of coun­cil or the in­de­pen­dence of Ms Casey. How­ever, it will en­sure that when an­i­mal is­sues arise their needs will be given a fair and proper hear­ing.’’

Ms Casey is proud to sup­port the SPCA.

‘‘SPCA Auck­land does es­sen­tial work to res­cue, re­ha­bil­i­tate and re-home aban­doned or mis­treated an­i­mals.

‘‘Mak­ing Auck­land the world’s most live­able city means car­ing for all our res­i­dents, in­clud­ing those who can­not speak for them­selves.’’
