Shepherd Mea on Saturday. The dog, a bull mastiff cross, had
been staying with the family for only a short time.
dog is registered to another person and that owner is

euthanized. If the owner does not do so, we can seek a court
order requiring the dog to be surrendered.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!
Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.
“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”
Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.
“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
