Submitted by on March 7, 2012 – 3:42 pm 2 Comments

The Sanctuary is a haven for all animals, with a focus on three main areas of work:

Native Birds

We rehabilitate and release native New Zealand birds back into the wild.

Rescue Animals

The Sanctuary is a permanent home and refuge for abandoned, abused, and forgotten animals.

Battery Hens

We rehabilitate and rehome ex-battery hens throughout the Auckland region.

Check out the website for the story of the Animal Sanctuary.

  • What wonderful work these people do – look how happy these animals are! Unfortunately, animal neglect & abuse is a bigger issue than we care to think here in NZ and its great to see the work they are doing at the Santuary. You can help them by donating the price of a cup of coffee a week. See their website for details.There really are some extraordinarily good people in this world 🙂
