Can’t find no uni­corn?

The Northland Age - - Local News -

Noah couldn’t find a cou­ple of uni­corns for his ark un­til it was too late, ac­cord­ing to the Ir­ish Rovers, but Bay of Is­lands An­i­mal Res­cue has had bet­ter luck.

It has se­cured one for a school hol­i­day chil­dren’s party in Rid­ing for the Dis­abled’s in­door arena at Wai­mate North on Satur­day, July 6.

The Medieval Party is be­ing or­gan­ised as a fundraiser for the char­ity, which works tire­lessly to re­home cats, dogs, cats and other an­i­mals in the district.

Along with pony (and uni­corn) rides, the party will fea­ture a bouncy cas­tle, games and food, in­clud­ing a sausage siz­zle, from 10am to


Sam Ste­wart, fundrais­ing and mar­ket­ing man­ager, said chil­dren would be in­vited to try their hand at archery (with suc­tion cup ar­rows), along with sword and shield paint­ing and uni­corn mask paint­ing.

There would be “a bit of dog safety ed­u­ca­tion” too.

Since form­ing in 2017, Bay of Is­lands An­i­mal Res­cue had re­homed well over 500 dogs, plus cats, horses, sheep, pigs, cows, ducks and even rab­bits.
