Pets find new homes

Central Leader - - News -

Hun­dreds of un­wanted pets found love on Valen­tine’s Day at the SPCA’s adopt-a-thon.

The Auck­land SPCA was part of a na­tion­wide cam­paign, which saw nearly 500 cats and dogs go to new homes.

Thou­sands of peo­ple flocked to the 18 shelters around the coun­try to meet the an­i­mals and many made on-the-spot adop­tions.

The web­site www.sec ond­chance­, set up in con­junc­tion with the adopt-a-thon, in­vites any­one who has opened their hearts to a home­less an­i­mal to share their story and in­spire oth­ers to fol­low their ex­am­ple.

The first 50 peo­ple to sub­mit a photo and short story get a free bag of Hill’s Sci­ence Diet food.

All sto­ries sub­mit­ted go into a draw for a year’s sup­ply of the food and Hill’s will do­nate $1000 to the win­ner’s choice of SPCA cen­tre.

Vis­i­tors to www.sec ond­chance­forlove. co. nz can also make a do­na­tion to the SPCA.
