FPL is situated on a lifestyle block of 5 stunning hectares including lush paddocks, large gardens and mature trees - located about 7.5 km from Clevedon and just under 40 km from Auckland airport.

Anton has an abundance of experience with animals, serving 12 years as a dog handler in the South African Police Service, shortly after arriving in NZ he volunteered his services at the SPCA in Mangere. He also holds several degrees in business and management. Therefore, it is no surprise that managing FPL is based on modern and sustainable practises. Hence the slogan "We do not follow we lead" holds true for FPL.

We're the most affordable and serene Pet Stay in Auckland, offering a number of affordable solutions, whether you are looking at a day stay or for long term boarding when you are away.

We still have spaces available for October and December school holidays, so to avoid disappointment, we wish to remind all existing and new customers that they need to contact us as soon as possible to make a booking for their pet/s for these busy periods. Reservations for out of season periods can be made at shorter notice.

Dear neighbours,

Please meet Alyce Read of Nelson, who uses her houseplant collection to connect with others and help them overcome mental health challenges. "You wouldn’t take a plant and put it in a dark corner and fail to water it and expect it to thrive. So we should look at ourselves that way," she says. "If we are not thriving in the way that we would wish, it might not be any fault of ours, it might be the conditions that we are under."

All it takes is a kind gesture to change someone’s day. From giving flowers to a neighbour ‘just because’ to paying it forward in line at a cafe - this month we’re encouraging our members and supporters to make New Zealand a better place one random act of kindness at a time.

The options for doing so are endless! Being kind doesn’t have to cost a thing, after all a smile is free. For those who want to go the extra mile, here’s some other ideas: take a gift over to new neighbours and introduce yourself, build a free community library for your street, buy extra kai at the grocery store to donate to a food bank, bring treats into work for colleagues, send an encouraging text to someone who needs it, let a car into the traffic ahead of you, write positive messages in chalk on sidewalks around your neighbourhood, or surprise loved ones with a visit.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re spreading kindness this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to:

Oceania has always believed in better and so does Meadowbank’s new Care Manager, Suzette Vorster.

Having worked in Aged Care for several years, Suzette’s favourite thing about her work has remained the same – giving back to those who’ve done so much for Aotearoa.

“Our residents have a lifetime of knowledge and have worked hard in often difficult times. I see it as such a privilege to be in a position to lead a team of people who are passionate about caring for them.”

Suzette’s recipe for great care is simple. “Great care means meeting a resident’s daily needs with empathy and warmth – to deliver the kind of care that anyone would want their Mum or Dad to have.”

She’s excited to take on a new challenge in our vibrant village beside Orakei Basin.

“Meadowbank is a beautiful site– it’s a place anyone would feel proud to live in and a place families enjoy visiting. Our Care Suites provide a feeling of independence within the comfort and security of exceptional 24/7, round-the-clock care.” And her vision for Meadowbank goes beyond brick and mortar.

“The heart of it is the people – staff who provide empathy and love, and residents who live their years to the fullest.”

To learn more about our Care Suites with Rest Home and Hospital level care, get in touch with Suzette today.
