Fundraising for Animal Rescue Charity in Northland


I am running a 165km race on 11 February 2023. In doing so I’m also raising money for Bay of Islands Animal Rescue which does such an amazing job.

Their motto is “Never Ending Story” as it sums up exactly what they give to these animals. The story never ends. There are always new stories and often sad stories with happy endings. They have a no kill policy unless it is an extreme case where the kindest thing to do.

An important part of their work involves de-sexing animals, educating people on how animals should be cared for including their housing, flea and worm treatment, vaccinations and the appropriate diet. They feed animals in the community during times of crisis for owners and sometimes ongoing. They provide dry warm shelters and blankets for outside dogs and aim to get dogs off life chains by working with the owners to provide containment solutions while educating on the need for exercise and mental stimulation.
