When Peggy came into the SPCA she was pregnant and missing the lower part of her right hind leg. We don't know what happened with her leg as it was an old injury. Now, thanks to our vet team and the care of our staff, she is desexed, has had her leg amputated and is ready to move on and find her forever home. She's a smoochy, sweet natured girl with a loving, playful purrsonality.
She is still recovering and learning about life on 3 legs. Once she has built up her strength she will be a normal cat with an awesome nature! We are looking for a family home with older kids, no other cats as she has been treated for cat flu, and a safe area for her once she's outside as she won't be as quick on her feet for a while. You can check her out on our website or give us a call at the centre on 094389161 ext 5 to make an appointment to come in and meet her www.spca.nz...
Check out our latest Kiwi match, Chris Humfrey and Kama
A Message from the Pukenui Rangers ..
"Chris Humfrey (Kiwi) had done the work for us and removed his transmitter of his own accord which left us thinking that was the end of it. It turned out however that he was huddled up in a nearby burrow with Kama, neither being too impressed about being disturbed! They were pulled out, weighed, and put back in the burrow to continue doing their thing, an early sign of breeding activity I reckon!"
Thanks especially to Carl Dowd from Pataua North Landcare who has been helping out immensely in the forest in tracking kiwi and health checks. Shout out to Pukenui hard working rangers Ben Lovell and Bevan Cramp and Kiwi Namesake the real Chris Humfrey (human)
A plan to offer Covid-19 vaccines to everyone over 50 in Northland has been called “a shambles”, as those over 75, who should have been high priority, cannot get a booking to get their dose. Last week, Northland District Health Board decided to buck Ministry of Health recommendations and open up its vaccine clinics to all over-50s. But with 73,000 Northlanders in this age group, it has been overwhelmed with demand, receiving an average of 50 calls an hour and more than 2000 emails to book an appointment. Have you had the same problems, or have you been able to book a vaccine appointment?
