WISE Sales & Marketing Team with Ellie & Floyd the Pug
The WISE Sales and Marketing team dropped off a trailer load of fire wood to the New Plymouth SPCA on the 29th of November. It was such an eye-opening experience and the team was able a sneak in a cuddle with our furry friends. We caught up with Amanda who has been with the SPCA for over five years now. The SPCA currently have approximately 60 animals including cows, horses, rabbits and birds in their care. Over 100 kittens are in foster homes.
While the team was visiting the SPCA we got a bit of insight to what the SPCA staff do. They work tirelessly and have such passion and connection with all the animals. Amanda shared with us the reason she loves her job is because she gets to care for the animals that have been neglected and gets to send them off to their new home.
Some of the challenges the SPCA face are trying to take in as many animals as they can however, there is a waiting list for cats and dogs. The reason for the waiting list is because they have limited cages and need to keep some spare for emergencies. All animals spend 7 days in quarantine, they are then de-sexed. Finally, they’ll be advertised for adoption and put in the adoption cages.
The public has been generous with their donation of blankets and towels however they’re in desperate need of volunteers, kitten food, kitty litter and kitten toys. Contact the New Plymouth SPCA on 067582053 or visit their centre at 75 Colson Road, New Plymouth.
