Guide Dog

Theresa from Greytown

Ankie is a Guide Dog and the newest member of our family and the Wairarapa Region. She is out and about with her handler regularly in Greytown, the greater Wairarapa region and beyond.
Guide Dogs are permitted under the Human Rights Act 1993 and the Dog Control Act 1996 to have legal access to any place or vehicle and use any facility as any other member of the public. Failure to permit a guide dog and their handler could be a breach of the handlers Human Rights. As the partner witnessing refusal of entry, or being told NO DOGS ALLOWED is very stressful for us all. Ankie will be everywhere my partner goes and where we go as a couple.
We are both shocked at the ignorance that is prevalent in our community.

If there is any organisation, business, school and ECE centres that would like us to visit please do not hesitate to pm me.

Theresa on behalf of her partner and his beautiful assistant Guide Dog Ankie.

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Poppi

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Poppi has found a new home courtesy of the SPCA.
"Poppi is having an amazing life with my partner and I, and her older brother in the Hutt Valley! Every night she sleeps on our bed curled up with her big brother Milo. Milo and Poppi are inseparable. They spend 100 per cent of their time together, whether its playing in the garden or cuddling together at night. She is a very happy and well treasured kid!"
