SPCA calls for animal lovers to collect for annual appeal
SPCA is calling for animal-loving volunteers across New Zealand to collect much-needed funds for animals during their 2019 Annual Appeal.
These volunteers will take to the streets between March 4-10 to raise funds for sick, abandoned, and abused animals. The SPCA Annual Appeal is the charity’s biggest fundraising event of the year, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for animals in need.
Signing up for two hours of collecting makes a lifetime of difference for neglected and injured animals across the country. Pets are welcome to join in on the fun, with dogs, goats, horses, and even a llama and a chicken accompanying their owners in the past and taking part to encourage donations from generous Kiwis.
SPCA helps protect 41,000 animals every year, and relies entirely on the generosity of the community to do their critical work saving the lives of animals. SPCA is the only NZ charity entrusted to uphold animal welfare law and has the power to prosecute those who offend against animals.
Donations help SPCA Inspectors rescue animals, give them love, care, provide a warm bed at SPCA shelters, give them critical medicine and veterinary support, and help them find new homes with their loving forever families.
