The Saving Lives campaign

The Royal NZ Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RNZSPCA) has embraced the philosophy that ‘every life is precious’ and its Saving Lives campaign has a number of platforms to ensure that the lives of animals are saved and that they enjoy a quality of life.

When implemented, each of the platforms is aimed at supporting the goal of saving lives.  The platforms are:

  1.  Our Animals  – Every Life is Precious
  2. Pet retention
  3. Rehabilitation
  4. Desexing
  5. Maximising adoptions
  6. Rescue groups
  7. Foster homes and other volunteers
  8. Saving the strays
  9. Community involvement
  10. Can do!

The Hokitika SPCA has made headlines for achieving a no-kill shelter status, a direction that the RNZSPCA not only endorses, but says that it wants to see replicated throughout the country .  Read all about it in this article in the Greymouth Star.
