Paws 4 life
Paws 4 Life Charitable Trust is a Registered Charity that began in 2010 due the increasing numbers of people and animals needing help within the Waikato. Paws 4 Life aims to reduce the population of unwanted animals by rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming animals as well as educating the community and also by providing solutions and alternatives for animals in need. We are a support network for those people in our community who are unable to, for various reasons, care for their animals.
All animals taken in by Paws 4 Life receive the necessary veterinary care and their medical and behavioural needs are met.
Paws 4 Life’s philosophy believes that every unwanted, neglected or abused animal deserves to have their needs met by The Five Freedoms:
1. Freedom from Hunger & Thirst – by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour.
2. Freedom from Discomfort – by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
3. Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease – by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
4. Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour – by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind.
5. Freedom from Fear and Distress – by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
“You cannot change the world by saving one animal...but you can change the world for that one animal.”
