I'm passionate about animal rights and education.
Every animal is an individual that deserves kindness and compassion.
Canterbury Tails Animal Rescue was founded in New Zealand in 2017.
We are a small family-run animal rescue in the South Island of New Zealand which is also a sanctuary for a small group of animals. By sharing the stories of the animals we meet I hope to create awareness and show people that these "pets" are no different from the animals people eat.
It all started in 2017, we were contacted by a friend who was aware of a pet pig who needed a new home. Poro (now Paul) a much-loved pet pig had outgrown his home but there were very few options for this beautiful boy. It is then that we realized how at risk these unconventional pets are. Paul now lives with us. Since then we've taken in "pets' as well as animals destined for the freezer and found safe forever homes for many others.
We become a registered charity in 2020 (#CC58280 )
The only difference between an animal that is petted and one that is farmed is the human in their lives.
Every animal is an individual.
