Charitable Work at PAW

Donna Doolittle's Animal Rescue

Donna Badorek has been running DDAR for 4 years. She was working at Topvets in Kaitaia when she saw the need for a charity to “ be the voice for those who cannot speak, the unwanted, stray or abused animals”.

Donna rehomes around 350 animals each year, sending them to their new homes only when they are healthy, vaccinated, microchipped, desexed and treated for fleas and worms, and only when she can match each animal with the ideal new owner.

We are very proud to have Donna as our head nurse and to be able to offer her rescue subsidised veterinary treatment, products and desexing.

We also donate to Donna any fundraising from eg our open days.

Moonridge Charitable Trust

We work closely with this trust, whose primary aim is to control the feral cat population of the area.

We assist them with their Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) programs to control the unwanted breeding of feral cats. They also work with town dwelling ‘colony cats’ to perform the same service. All cats that are desexed through the trust are ear tipped so that if recaptured, can be easily identified as already desexed and immediately released. This procedure is performed whilst the cats are under anaesthetic for desexing and does not affect them in any adverse way.
