This is the welcoming home of Upper Hutt Animal Rescue, where we are contributing to the Santa Kitty Toy Hop.


UHARS administration centre and kitten units  Above you can see that the daily cleaning of the cattery and rabbitry is in full swing and, with the litter trays out to dry, volunteers are buy cleaning out the cattery apartments inside the main building.

It is summer here in New Zealand and kitten season will begin in earnest late December early January, so kitten food is one of the Rescues’ priorities at the moment. So we are donating bags of kitten food instead of toys – the reason being, there are plenty of toys in the small rescue and the favoured ping-pong balls are in plentiful supply. We hope to some crinkle balls will be acceptable to the younger members of the Rescue’s community too.

The Rescue works hard to to ensure the safety and health of the cats, kittens and rabbits in its care. They have a website, and you are welcome to visit their Facebook page to say hello!
