The Wishes Trust #CC50059

It’s about the village www.onceuponatime.org.nz is about the village raising the children. We all recognise and abhor that inequality and poverty exists just down the road and around the corner. This website gives the village we live in the opportunity to look briefly into the lives of our local schools and offer a helping hand, whether it be addressing inequality or enriching children’s lives.

 

Every day and in every way, ARRC Wildlife Trust aims to improve the well-being of our communities’ wildlife, animals and natural environment.

Founded in 2003 by Dr. Liza Schneider, ARRC Wildlife Trust has been assisting the Department of Conservation, Vet clinics and public with the rescue and rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife in the Bay of Plenty.

As part of our commitment to the preservation of our environment, ARRC is proactive with animal related projects such as our “Adopt a Pet Program”.

Passionate about caring for our native wildlife, we work to educate and create public awareness in order to ensure the long-term health of our wildlife and their natural environment.

 

The Wallace Gallery Morrinsville is a project borne out of passion and community vision: intended as a centre of excellence, showcasing New Zealand art and artists, providing a community focus and an ideal venue for inspiring and educating young people.

The Charitable Trust which is responsible for bringing this vision to life has garnered the respect and support of the art patron James Wallace, who has pledged the rights to exhibit the entire James Wallace Arts Trust collection in the new Morrinsville location. With the most comprehensive collection of contemporary New Zealand art in existence -more than 5000 pieces valued at over $50million and spanning over 50 years- it is an incredible accolade for Morrinsville Gallery, and a real coup for the area.

Cat Rescue Christchurch Charitable Trust #CC37699

Cat Rescue Christchurch Charitable Trust is located in Christchurch, New Zealand, and focuses on reducing stray cat overpopulation by using the trap, neuter, return (TNR) method. Stray kittens who are under 8 weeks of age are socialised, desexed and rehomed.

Cat Rescue Christchurch also promotes the desexing of companion and stray cats whom people are feeding, and the early desexing of kittens before being rehomed from any adoption facility.

Cat Rescue Christchurch relies on donations from generous people to fund its work. We do not have a shelter but instead have volunteers who foster and socialise our cats and kittens in their own homes until they are ready for their forever homes.

Over 6100 cats have been desexed or rescued and rehomed by Cat Rescue Christchurch since our organisation was founded in 2006, preventing many thousands more unwanted cats from being born.

Stratford Companion Animal Assistance Trust #CC47730

The Scratching Post is operated by the Stratford Companion Animal Assistance Trust, a small Trust independent of any other organisation.

The Stratford Companion Animal Assistance Trust was registered with the Charities Commission in May 2012 (CC47730).  We needed an operation base and means to fundraise, so The Scratching Post opened in Stratford in August 2012 and became our presence in the Community.

Our two main objectives are caring for young kittens in need and advocating the need and importance of pet desexing.

We concentrate on helping young kittens as they are the most vulnerable due to their age and inexperience. By concentrating on the younger generation we also ensure that they do not contribute to uncontrolled breeding resulting in more homeless cats in our District.

4good Charity for March 2019……..

Thanks to all who voted for the charity to support in March 2019.

The New Zealand charity with the most votes from the 4good community in March is………

Leg-Up Trust #CC32010

The seeds of Leg-Up were sown when Ros Rowe set up a small horse trekking business in 1999 to help a suicidal young woman get back on her feet by giving her a job. The trekking business did well but the casual way in which clients rode the horses didn’t sit well with the operators, and inspired the term ‘hairy bicycle syndrome’. To address this concern half day Horse Sense sessions were offered in which participants learned about the nature of horses which transcended merely riding them and these became very successful.

When the young woman finally found her feet and was ready to face life again, Ros felt the aim of the trekking business had been fulfilled and therefore prepared to close the business. However, there was an outcry from groups of at-risk youth and mental health clients who had found the Horse Sense sessions beneficial, so Ros closed the business and set up the Leg-Up Trust to meet the expressed needs of these people.

The point of difference in Leg-Up’s approach which succeeds where all else has failed lies in the use of horses as teachers. Where human beings may be suspect in the view of abused and neglected children, the horses pose no such risk to damaged souls. They keep their own counsel, offer what is perceived as unconditional love and do not judge. The students learn the basics of a relationship which has to supersede the predator/prey barrier, and through this become aware of how their actions influence those around them

The German Shepherd Rescue Trust #CC27372
