This is an invitation from Pixies Animal Rescue to come to our cat and kitten adoption days next week - Monday 19 April, Tuesday 20 April, Wednesday 21 April, Thursday 22 April and Friday 23 April - between the hours of 10am and 3pm daily.

Location: 66 Wilson Road, Dairy Flat, Auckland 0792. Please ensure that you park on the roadside and do not block the driveway.

You do not need an appointment on these days to view our cats and kittens. However, please only visit during viewing hours (after 10am and before 3pm). You will not be able to do any viewing outside of the timeframe indicated as we need to see to the needs of all of our Rescue animals and their welfare is our priority.

If you are a cat person then you will enjoy the fun and companionship
that a Rescue cat or kitten can provide. Through no fault of their own, our Rescue cats and kittens have found themselves homeless or have been rescued from situations where they have been abused.

From the shy to the timid, the super-cuddly to the needy, and the not-so-friendly barn cats. They are all longing to find their forever home where they will be treated as a precious part of the family, cared for, and loved unconditionally for their lifetime.

Adoption fee: $250.00 per cat/kitten - This covers the cost of bringing your cat/kitten up to a good standard of health including spaying/neutering, vaccinations, flea and worm treatment, microchipping (and registration on the New Zealand Companion Animal Register) and vet medical clearance before you take him/her home.

Please note: If you are renting, you will be required to provide a letter signed by your landlord or the property manager stating that you are allowed to have a cat or cats at the address where you are living.

Adoption is a serious matter: you need to make a commitment for the rest of a Rescue animal’s natural lifetime! We have invested a lot of time and love into the Rescues we adopt out so we want you, them, and us to be sure that they have found their forever loving home where they will thrive. All necessary checks will be carried out. We reserve the right to decline any prospective adoptions with no questions asked.

Million-dollar dumps: Publicly owned properties fall to rack and ruin

To the side of East Auckland’s Te Ara ki Uta ki Tai cycleway, nestled in overgrown greenery, is a building that wouldn’t get a second glance if it weren’t for hot pink graffiti.

The house, owned by Auckland Council subsidiary Auckland Transport, was used as a site office by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency staff working on the $46 million cycleway between Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive, Auckland Transport spokesman Mark Hannan said.

But locals say the property has been all but destroyed by vandals since the cycleway was completed in 2016.

The property is one of several that have become run down and derelict under the ownership of local government.

More than 9000 kids will have full tummies to help them focus at school each day, thanks to an agreement putting the underused North Harbour Stadium kitchen to work.

Spotless and Auckland Unlimited, which owns the stadium in Albany, have come together to provide the free healthy lunches daily to 26 schools in Henderson, Massey, Ōrākei and Maungakiekie-Tāmaki.

The stadium’s full production-sized kitchen was a big investment but was “hardly” used during the week, Auckland Mayor Phil Goff said.

However, the arrangement would see the kitchen used every weekday, producing a stream of revenue for Auckland Council, eliminate some of the burden from ratepayers all while creating employment for 90 people in what Goff described as a win-win arrangement.

Onewa Rd's controversial transit lane is set to get 68 cameras to better enforce the rules and combat abuse against Auckland Transport staff.

The 2.3 kilometre road has 17 transit zones – nine towards the city and eight towards Birkenhead - which can only be used by cars with three or more passengers between 6.30am and 9am, and 4pm-6pm, Monday to Friday.

The current enforcement method involves Auckland Transport staff standing on the side of the road with a camera, however a spokesman said that put them at risk of being abused by angry motorists.

The new cameras will allow for more consistent monitoring of the lanes, the spokesman added.

Each of the 17 transit zones will have one remote monitoring unit, each containing four cameras.
