Paws for Thought

SPCA folk need you — so they can  help dogs, cats and other animals

The  SPCA’s Paws Appeal takes to the streets on the Kapiti Coast this Saturday (12th) so look out for their dogs as well as collectors!

The Wellington SPCA will have no fewer than 450 volunteers and staff on the streets.

On Saturday, they will hit Kapiti and Lower Hutt and on Friday they’ll be out in Wellington and Porirua — but they’ll also pay a lightning visit to the Paraparaumu Station early that day to greet commuters going to work.

They — and other collectors throughout the country — will be raising money to help fund the SPCA’s lifesaving services.

Collectors will be easy to spot on the streets  with official bibs —  and some will be with their own dogs.

Wellington SPCA (which covers the Kapiti Coast) relies on support from the whole community.  The centres help provide food, shelter, welfare inspectors, veterinary care, love and a chance to find a new home for over 5,000 unwanted, abused and neglected animals in the Wellington region each year.

Wellington SPCA receives no direct government funding so please dig deep this Friday/ Saturday when you see our collectors out on the street. It’s only with help from our community that precious lives can continue to be saved.
