The launch of our exciting new Animal Welfare campaign is just around the corner (25th August). The Animal Welfare Act is under review for the first time in a long time, and we’d like to see some big changes.
Last week some of our staff headed up to The Animal Sanctuary in Matakana to interview some animals and get their take on the state of animal welfare in New Zealand
Sanctuary owners Shawn Bishop and Michael Dixon know the story of each and every resident there – and it wasn’t always easy hearing their stories. We have a duty of care for domestic animals no matter what they are bred for, and often fail in this duty. Tougher laws are a very important way of ensuring justice on their behalf and preventing future harm.
