WSPA is asking local dog lovers to make a four-legged stand for - ‘ collars not cruelty’-  in dog parks across New Zealand, on 28 April 2012 (10.30am-11.30am) in order to help raise awareness of the mass killing of dogs around the world. 

Sadly, a dog is brutally killed every two seconds, around the world, most because of a fear of rabies. They are thrown off bridges, slowly poisoned, beaten to death; even gassed. Instead of facing such cruel and definite death, mass vaccination programmes for these dogs can protect them and the humans they share their life with.
WSPA has made a difference to the lives of dogs in Bali and Colombo, through mass vaccination programmes and is now offering a lifeline to thousands of others in Bangladesh and other parts of Asia through its new fundraising campaign Collars not Cruelty.
WSPA will be at local dog parks across the main centres Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch on Saturday 28 April between (10.30am-11.30am) and urges dog lovers (and their four-legged friends) to join us and help spread the message that this mass killing can and must stop. 

Please join the four-legged stand for ‘collars not cruelty’ at:

  • Auckland: Meola Reef, 28 April @10.30am-11.30am
  • Christchurch: Groynes Park, Groynes Drive @10.30-11.30am 
  • Wellington: Lyall Bay, Wellington@10.30am-11.30am
