No More Strays

Projects image
Stray Cats New Zealand Trust has the aim of No More Strays in New Zealand.

Project 1
The initial Rescue Centre Design project has now concluded, and been a great success. Fifteen stunning designs were submitted by the students, in both urban and rural settings. Four have been selected for the next stage. Our grateful thanks to the supervisors, Martin Axe and Peter Townsend, our veterinary advisor Dr. Jess Beer, and our special appreciation to the students who worked so hard on this challenging project to produce such excellent results.

Please see four stunning designs on our Rescue Centre Design page. We need $10 million to build. All donations gratefully received.

Project 2
We have been working for the past year, together with other cat groups, on the Auckland Council Best Practice for Cats. The meetings have been run by Dr. Imogen Bassett, Auckland Council Manager, assisted by Cathy Casey, Auckland Councillor. We are pleased to say that although the meetings were often fraught and tense that we have together achieved a successful outcome.

The brochure, Best Practice Guidelines for Cat Ownership and Welfare, can be viewed on the Auckland Council website: or see our Best Practice Guidelines page below.
