More time to pick out your pooch

More time to pick out your pooch

Visitors to Waitakere’s Animal Welfare Centre have more time to pick the next family pooch.

The centre has changed its weekend hours 11am to 2pm both Saturday and Sunday in response to the ‘rush hour’ that occurs on Saturdays from 11am to 12 noon.

Visitors will also notice a new look to the centre at 48 The Concourse Henderson, with new signage and branded Waitakere Animal Welfare utes.

The larger than life photo at the entrance has special meaning for Animal Welfare staff, as all the animals in the photo have once been residents who were eventually adopted.

Presently there are no cats available for adoption, but a variety of dogs are available to become family pets. Adoption costs $125 per dog which includes a $60 de-sexing voucher, $45 vet check and vaccination and $20 registration fee. All dogs being adopted will be microchipped for easier identification in the future.

For more information about adoption, see www.waitakere.govt.nz or call 839 0400.
