An update on a SPCA dog that was successfully adopted.

"Remi has been a ball of crazy adorable energy since the start. Meaning she fits right in with our big family and is always happy to meet new people. She continually find ways to get up to mischief but she's so cute it's impossible to get mad at her. She has adjusted really well to living with three cats and six chickens (although the cats were very unimpressed at first).Our entire family has fallen in love with her and can't wait to see what crazy adventures she gets up to next."

Maori Language Week, and a good moment to welcome Dr. Taku Parai from our local Iwi, Ngati Toa.

After an exchange of preliminaries between Dexter Traill and Dr. Parai in te reo Maori, Taku went on to describe his upbringing, the history of his Iwi, and what the future holds.

Taku comes from a large family centred on the Takapuwahia Marae. His father was a Maori All Black and went to great lengths to launch his sons into various trades.

Taku has had a varied career, first as an electrician and then as a historian, after enrolling at Victoria University. He was awarded a PhD in Norway, after studies involving the Sami indigenous people of Scandinavia.

Following growing unrest about Crown acquisition of Maori land, the Waitangi Tribunal was established in 1975. It was not until 2010 that Ngati Toa’s claim was settled. The settlement was seen as satisfactory by the Iwi, and it has enabled the development of a wide range of enterprises and services.

The Iwi is looking forward to major investments in housing, in collaboration with local and central government, and training and employment opportunities for young Maori.

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Poe

This week we feature Poe.

“Hi there, my name is Poe and I am a great pup looking for my forever home. I have not had the best start to life so would love a home that understands my quirks and is keen to help me through them. A home that has the patience and time to help me be the best companion I know I can be. I am super social so I could go a home with another playful dog that loves having a good tumble. I am not suited to a home with young children so would love a home with teenagers who are keen to teach me new things and take me on adventures. Puppy school is something I am looking forward to doing with my new family, especially learning things and making new friends. I do come with a medical waiver that my new home would need to be aware of. If you think you are the home for me please contact the canine team for more information.”
