Our goal is to end pet over population by offering desexing services to low income familiesat a substantially reduced rate
Desexy Revolution is a community project from the Humane Rescue, Rehabilitation and Rehoming Trust (HURRAH). Its main aim is straightforward; To end pet overpopulation by offering desexing services to low income families at a substantially reduced rate (occasionally free). The project also promotes an educational programme on the importance and benefits of desexing, and about an owner’s obligations (health and well-being) to their pets.
New Zealand has one of the highest levels of pet ownership per person, well ahead of the USA, the UK and Australia. A 2011 survey conducted by NZCAR revealed that nearly one-third of New Zealand homes owned a dog. And yet, despite obviously being a nation of animal lovers, 23,000 companion animals were put to sleep in Auckland Pounds and Shelters in 2014*. These animals were unwanted; there simply were not enough homes available for them.
