News « Adopt a cat kitten or Rabbit in Upper Hutt

In the last two weeks, UHARS have been able to rehome a good number of kittens and cats. This is great news and long may this trend continue. ‘Kitten Smitten’ next weekend, will hopefully see us rehome a good number more as well.

Kitten Smitten

Upper Hutt Animal Rescue society invite you to ‘Kitten Smitten’, our kitten adoption day to be held at ’The Mall’ in Upper Hutt on 16 April 2011 between 10.30am and 2.30pm. Become smitten with a new kitten and take them home, on the day!

Kittens cost $125 for 1 or $200 for 2. You must provide your own carry case, or purchase one from us.

The concept behind ‘Kitten Smitten’is that some people don’t want to come to a ‘rescue centre’ and see all the animals that need to be rehomed. Mainly as a number of people can’t make a decision on which to take home because there is just too many to choose from.

Therefore, taking the kittens to a neutral environment may encourage people to come and choose a kitten to take to their ‘forever home’. There are some advantages too of getting your kitten on the 16th:

  • discounted prices will be available on the day
  • ‘Paws and Claws’ are giving us a special deal
  • Haven volunteers will be on hand to answer any queries prospective buys may have.

Fundraising events

  1. 16th of April – sausage sizzle at Bunnings in Naenae
  2. 30th April – Street collection outside Countdown Maidstone supermarkets
  3. 7th May – Street collection outside New World Naenae

If you have any ideas in regards to fundraising, please contact us. All ideas will be considered.

Volunteers urgently required for fundraising events

This year has been particularly expensive at the vets. With greater awareness in the community we require more funds to cover costs for the number of animals that come our way. We are very proud of our ‘no kill’ policy, and need to keep our heads well above water by always thinking of new ways to fund raise. If you can help out at our Street collections (even if it’s for an hour) we’re really love to hear from you.

Congratulations to our new foster families

Congratulations to all the new foster families that have come forward and volunteered their homes to our kittens waiting their turns to find their forever homes. I understand that it can create some challenges, but hope that the unconditional love that you are receiving in return is making it all worth while.

We also welcomed new five residents (Moggie & Tom Tom – both being fostered), Alfie (rehomed & now returned for rehoming), Baillie & rabbit Klaus. If you don’t see images for the new ‘entrants’, it’s likely because they’ve gone straight into foster care due to their age or for health reasons.
