Blankets needed for cold pooches in Porirua
Blankets needed for cold pooches
Council has sent out a call to residents asking for old
blankets, towels or sheets that they no longer want. The
Council's supply for keeping the dogs at the pound warm is
running low and they're looking for clean, used bedding or
towels to replenish their stocks. People can drop them off
during working hours, at the Animal Control Centre at the
Council's Works Depot in Prosser Street, Elsdon, or at the
Council's Administration Building in Cobham Court. Or if
people can't drop them off but live in Porirua City, they
can ring the Council on 237 5089 and someone from Animal
Control can pick them up. On behalf of the dogs - Woof!

On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag
One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.
This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.
What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
