Ap­pre­ci­at­ing an­i­mal an­gels who help us

Bay News - - YOUR PETS - Mar­garet Rawiri

One can never show enough ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the com­mu­nity sup­port which keeps us go­ing, so I would like to give a heart­felt thanks to all the won­der­ful peo­ple in our com­mu­nity that con­tinue to sup­port the SPCA in gen­eral, but more so the Tau­ranga Cen­tre.

We feel very priv­i­leged with the amount of sup­port and un­der­stand­ing we re­ceive which helps us con­tinue with the im­por­tant workwe do in car­ing, re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing and re-hom­ing the mas­sive numbers of an­i­mals that come our way. Nine times out of 10 the an­i­mals are in a some­what shabby state and in dire need of the love and at­ten­tion that— be­tween our cen­tre staff, vol­un­teers and fos­ter­ers and your sup­port— we can give.

Your on­go­ing sup­port also helps the SPCA Tau­ranga cen­tre en­sure we are do­ing our best to pre­vent cru­elty to an­i­mals, al­le­vi­ate suf­fer­ing of an­i­mals and pro­mot­ing our poli­cies through ed­u­ca­tion and ad­vo­cacy, and also pros­e­cut­ing­where nec­es­sary. SPCAs are ap­proved or­gan­i­sa­tions un­der the An­i­mal Wel­fare Act 1999 which legally gives us the rights to en­force the law in this area, ac­cept an­i­mals into our care, re-home the an­i­mals suitably and hu­manely al­le­vi­ate pain and suf­fer­ing­where ab­so­lutely nec­es­sary. We couldn’t do any of this with­out your help which I can proudly say there is no short­age of, and we are more than hum­bled.

We have had an amaz­ing amount of sup­port with adop­tions over the past months, see­ing our an­i­mals go to lov­ing for­ever homes, ones that they de­serve and long for. We know that all these pre­cious an­i­mals need is some­one to give them a chance. With them comes a huge amount of love to give back to that spe­cial per­son or fam­ily that gives them that chance which I think any adoptee can vouch for. We thank you for com­ing to us first to find your new fam­ily friend— you couldn’t find more de­serv­ing an­i­mals.

To all of you who gra­ciously do­nate to the SPCA, whether it is food, lit­ter, bed­ding, news­pa­per , do­na­tions of a mone­tary na­ture, do­na­tions of pre­cious time, be it vol­un­teer­ing at the shel­ter, open­ing your home to fos­ter­ing, col­lect­ing— the list is end­less. Thank you, an­i­mal an­gels.
