On 13 May 2023 the group Wild Cats of Waikawa held a yard sale on Hank Edwards Reserve that raised several hundred dollars.
Everyone knows about the numerous cats that roam the area but don’t have a home to call their own. Many people are concerned about the harm these cats may do to the other wildlife we’re trying to protect, such as rare or declining native birds.
Wild Cats of Waikawa aims to trap the cats, neuter those that can be rehomed and then rehome them, mostly elsewhere. The cats are checked to make sure they don’t belong to anyone and their health is assessed too.
All of that costs so ongoing funding makes a big difference.
If you’d like to contact the group email email@example.com.
I believe future fundraising efforts are in the works too.
