The diary

The Dominion Post - - Capital Day -

The Free as a Hawk Refuge in Te Horo has had a happy end­ing in its quest to find a new home for its three male al­pacas. It took just three days for a suitable home to be found, un­sur­pris­ing given the thou­sands of com­ments and shares the post re­ceived on­line. The trio are mov­ing just down the road from the Kapiti Coast sanc­tu­ary, a dream re­sult for the an­i­mals who don’t cope well be­ing by them­selves.

Welling­to­ni­ans are be­ing en­cour­aged to ‘‘Re­turn the love’’ this Christ­mas with the re­turn of the an­nual Tree of Hope cam­paign run by An­i­mates pet shops. Run­ning un­til Christ­mas Eve, cus­tomers are en­cour­aged to buy a $3, $5 or $10 Joy, Love or Hope dec­o­ra­tion to hang on the trees set up in An­i­mates stores and An­i­mates Vet­care clin­ics. Funds raised will go to the SPCA and the Mo­bil­ity As­sis­tance Dogs Trust.
