Dogs straining at leash for new homes

Major is a strong boy who is looking for a best friend.

He is loyal, hardworking and likes taking long walks on the beach.

Major is of course a dog – a german shepherd-cross to be exact – and one of about 20 dogs at the Te Awamutu SPCA who needs a home. Last month the Royal New Zealand Society for the Protection of Animals (RSPCA) stepped in to take control of the branch after the Waipa District Council threatened to prosecute because of on-going issues around the number of dogs being held on the premises.

Chief executive Dianne Gray was stood down pending an investigation by the RSPCA and volunteers from other SPCAs stepped in to bridge the gap until a permanent solution can be found.
