Dog Lovers Invited to Attend Nelson SPCA’s Dogs’ Day Out 2014

Nelson SPCA is calling all local dog owners and their canine friends to join in the fun and festivities at Dogs’ Day Out 2014.

Previously named the Million Paws Walk, Dogs’ Day Out is an annual event designed to celebrate the importance of dogs and their caregivers in our community, whilst raising funds for Nelson SPCA.

Nelson SPCA Event Coordinator, Summer Marvin, says this year’s event will feature a variety of attractions.

“Dogs’ Day Out is all about having a great time, so we encourage local dog lovers to treat their four-legged friends to a fun day out,” says Summer.

“There’s a host of festivities for everyone to enjoy, including the popular dog show (featuring Prettiest Girl, Best Dressed and Golden Oldie), a dog agility demonstration by Nelson Dog Training Club, a Dress-A-Thon and best dressed toy animal for the kids.

“There will also be a range of business stalls, a bouncy castle, face painting, delicious food and fantastic prizes up for grabs - including a year’s supply of K9+ natural health supplements from O2B Healthy.”

Dogs’ Day Out 2014 is sponsored by O2B Healthy, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Nelson More FM 92.8 and The Leader. Proceeds from the event will go to the Nelson SPCA - providing care and shelter to animals in need.

Gordon Campbell: On The Legal Fudging Of The GCSB Revelations

As many have noted, the Hager/Snowden revelations of the spying by our security agencies on our Pacific neighbours and allies is a virtual re-run of the pre-election debate.

Unfortunately, it is also a forerunner of the kind of “ debate” we can expect during the upcoming review of the security agency powers, in June. It is a situation where the government (a) stonewalls, (b) baldly asserts that mass surveillance is not occurring despite the Snowden evidence that it is, and (c) claims that the GCSB actions were lawful.

Yet as Greens Co-Leader Russel Norman says, this can be true only if the legislation passed last year by the Key government has made the mass surveillance of New Zealanders – and the related handing over of their private data to the NSA – lawful. More>>
