DO YOU KNOW A GOOD ROOFER?
What’s your story?
At the time Ken had two rescued cats (Mi Two and Madara) and Richelle decided to adopt another one (Mao, he was one day away from being euthanized) after they got married. They took their three cats to every country they lived, Kuwait, the US, Mexico and China. They not only bought their own cats but also rescued, fostered and found homes for many others in the countries they lived. In Shanghai. Ken joined the animal rescue group, Bow Meow Shanghai, and attended many adoption events, organised two of his own adoption events at the school where he worked, and found homes for many rescued cats and dogs.
Less than one year after arriving in New Zealand, Richelle and Ken are working hard to make this dream come true and they will have a crowdfunding page so you can help too!
Neko Ngeru are selling Entertainment Books and giving the 20% profit to the rescue organisations with whom they work.
As well as all their work to help cat rescue organisations in the Wellington region, Neko Ngeru are donating a reusable Karma Kup, worth $30, to the Outpawed raffle.
This is a reusable cup made from high quality glass.
Size: 140 x 95mm dia, 320ml
“We at Neko Ngeru believe reusing is important for a sustainable society so we would like to encourage our customers to bring their own cups. You can get a small discount if you bring your own cup!”
Tickets for the raffle will be available at the August Petone Winter Market, 10.30am to 3pm, 19th August, at the Petone Baptist Church, 38 Buick Street, Petone.
The Petone Winter Markets are the place to buy locally made creations, snack on tasty treats, and fuel up with coffee from Ripe. Drop off the kids at the fully fenced play area while you browse our 30+ indoor stalls and take in the stylings of some local entertainers. There will be all kinds of winter woollies, magpie treasures, tasty treats, and fantastic gift ideas for all! Bring a carry bag – we’re a plastic-bag-free event.
In the weeks leading up to each market, we will be running a gold-coin-entry colouring competition, featuring poster artwork by Cat Drayer from Copper Catkin. Proceeds from the competition will help local charity Outpawed with the care and management of stray and feral cats (and KITTENS) in the Wellington region. The prize is a fantastic play-date with some Outpawed kittens. KITTENS!
Join us and help brighten these wintery weekends with some family-friendly handmade goodness!
And did we mention KITTENS?
“Outpawed is a NZ-registered charity dedicated to the care and management of stray and feral cats in the Wellington region.
We provide shelter for wild cats and kittens, and aim to desex, socialise, vaccinate, microchip and find homes for as many of these cats as possible. We are also involved in trap-neuter-return (TNR) for cats that cannot be integrated into a household environment. Where TNR is necessary, cats are released into managed colonies where they are fed and monitored.
We aim to work with local government and other animal welfare organisations to obtain the best outcome possible for the feral cat population. Our goal is to reduce this population over time through desexing and adoption.“
