Raise awareness of inhumane farming practices in NZ. Only pork produced without stalls and crates are animal welfare friendly!
Helping ban factory farming of pigs in New Zealand. Educating consumers about the power of their choices.
The SPCA (Royal New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is the largest animal welfare charity in New Zealand and the only charity with the power to prosecute in cases of animal cruelty, abandonment and mistreatment.
As a charity, we receive less than 1% of our funding from the government - and this funding is for rural cases only (involving animals on farms). As such, we rely almost entirely on the generosity of the public to carry out our life-saving work.
In November 2017, SPCA centres around the country unified to become a single entity. The key reasons for this change were to better provide a consistently high standard of care and service for the animals, no matter where they are, and to ensure that all SPCA centres are supported through the sharing of resources and skills.
Funds raised in communities fund the work of local centres and also support other SPCA centres that struggle to resource the areas they cover.

""http://www.freedomfarms.co.nz"">www.freedomfarms.co.nz http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3410/3572584600_463cb9f252_m.jpg"" Well it's not just about crisp bacon and happy piggies... but that's what we do so far... Actually it's all about naturally farmed foods, bringing back quality,and challenging what's been going on in farming worldwide. Today farming is becoming more and more about producing...at all cost...cheaper and cheaper (and often lower quality) food using more and more intensive systems. It's often called farming with... ""chemicals and cages""... and the result ? Frankly we know there is a better way.... We know more and more Kiwis (and people worldwide) care about the quality of their food... and about where their food comes from... ... and want to know that their farm animals are being raised more naturally and humanely and ... want to know what they are being fed and ... want to be sure they are not loaded up with chemicals and growth hormones. ... and want to be sure the farmers they support are trying hard to minimise their impact on our environment and operate sustainably.. So we started Freedom Farms... because we figured someone had to bring back a more natural way... http://www.naturallyorganic.co.nz"">www.naturallyorganic.co.nz ?Karen and Neil Thomas- the owners of Naturally Organic believe that as well as Healthy Foods & Groceries, service and friendly helpful Staff is the key to this successful business.
