Discounted De-Sexing Means No Excuse

Discounted De-Sexing Means No Excuse for West Auckland Residents

Thousands of unwanted cats and kittens die in Auckland every single year due to starvation and disease. This problem can be prevented by responsible pet ownership, specifically, by ensuring that your cat has been de-sexed by 5-6 months of age. Auckland Cat Rescue is calling on pet owners to help reduce the number of stray and unwanted cats.

“There are not enough homes for all stray and unwanted cats in Auckland” warns Auckland Cat Rescue Chairperson Jennie Allan “The cats that have the fortune to come into our organisation and get homes are the lucky ones - Cat owners must take seriously the need to de-sex their cats before they reach maturity at 5-6 months old. We don’t need more kittens when it could be prevented,” she says.

One of the biggest barriers to de-sexing is the cost. Recognising this barrier, and offering a solution, Auckland Cat Rescue together with Western Veterinary in Avondale, is offering a special discount for de-sexing. This offer is open to people who live in the West Auckland area and who are community services cardholders or tertiary students.

It is the fourth time the discounted service has been run by Auckland Cat Rescue in the last 18 months, over this time they have facilitated the de-sexing of over 200 cats through these campaigns, preventing the birth of thousands of kittens.

The discounted de-sexing campaign is being run from the 16 th of October 2006. West Auckland residents who qualify for a special discount can have their pets neutered for just $25 (males) or spayed for $30 (females) additional costs will apply for pregnant cats. The normal cost ranges from $50 to $150. Bookings are essential. To make an appointment please phone the Vet clinic directly:

Gordon Campbell: On National’s Ongoing Problems With Abortion


Despite Christopher Luxon’s assurances to the contrary, there is no such thing as “settled law” in New Zealand. Apart from the six provisions that are constitutionally entrenched, legislation can always be amended or overturned by a simple majority vote within our single chamber of Parliament. Luxon’s repeated use of the term “settled law” has been particularly tone deaf, given that several of the US Supreme Court justices used that very same term during their confirmation hearings...
