Greater Wellington Regional Council Possum Poisoning Operations
The club receives letters from the GWRC to advise of 1080 poisoning operations in the area from time to time. Please check the club rooms for these letters.
Do not rely on treatment. Prevention is the only sure way of protecting dogs from poisoning. Local veterinary clinics will have been informed of all GWRC 1080 operations.
Looking for an Older GSD?
If you are interested in getting a German Shepherd Dog but maybe not a puppy - how about re-homing and older dog. The club is often appraoched to help find new homes for dogs and bitches, and are always keen to hear from people that may be interested in taking in such a dog.
We currently have a number on the books and are really keen to find them new homes. Some of these dogs may be dogs rescued from being mistreated, to others that due to changing circumstances of their owners, just loving pets that need a new home.
The club also supports the work of volunteers who take in rescued dogs. If you are interested in supporting these people the club is always happy to distribute dog food donated at the club to help feed the rescued dogs.
If you can help re-home a GSD, or even interested in donating some dog food please either E-mail us or canned and dried food can be left at the club rooms on Sunday morning.
We are really keen to hear from anyone out there that can help.
Denise runs GSD Rescue Group with a small, dedicated crew of volunteers. Read the story of her beloved first GSD Yani and you will understand what drives this remarkable lady to save and rehome GSD's who represent to her a courageous, loyal and magnificent breed.
If you can assist through either rehoming, providing a foster home in the interim or donation of food, collars, leads, bedding, transport offers please email Denise. All offers of help would be greatly appreciated.
ROAD CODE - Driver responsibility
On a serious note, if you hit a dog on the road for whatever reason......did you realise that under the Road Code Rules that you are obligated to STOP and attend to the animal, find the owner and if that is not successful, notify the SPCA / Police WITHIN 48 hours??
Do you know what to do if you hit a dog? I'm sure there are vets / vet nurses out there who could offer an article on this.......if you can help with an article on first aid for dogs hit by automobiles, please do so & we'll put it up here for our club members.
Are there any club members out there who would love to see their GSD on the net??? If so, please E-MAIL me with your pics!! firstname.lastname@example.org
Drop the pics and info into the club rooms on Sunday.
