With just three weeks to go until Christmas, we're excited to announce the launch of our new range of merchandise. Find the perfect gift for the animal lover in your life and the money you spend will go towards helping animals in need.
This month, we’re looking for Morgan's forever home, protecting pets from the unexpected, giving eight neglected puppies a second chance at life, and preventing heat-related injury this summer.
We're also calling for improved treatment of bobby calves in the dairy industry and an end to rodeo cruelty, working to ensure high animal welfare standards with SPCA Blue Tick, and celebrating an important milestone for pig welfare.

It's not just New Zealanders who are suffering from obesity. Pets are too, with over 40% of dogs and over 30% of cats estimated to be clinically overweight or obese1,2.
Extra weight is a significant danger to their health. Cats face the prospect of increasing the risk of serious diseases like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, painful osteoarthritis and urinary disease.
Many of us don’t realise that our pets have a weight problem, and even when we do, we may not be aware of how much it can affect their health and well-being.
