Dear friends to keep you updated in NZ News-
I have sent two 8 x poster sets to schools next to military bases for children on the history of NZ War animals. Along with 25 books to other schools. PDF version available to all NZ Schools.
I have also sponsored two NZ Veteran war dogs- now retired from Defence. We have donated leads, rugs, coats,collars medication and food along with a $500 donation for future Vet bills.
We have also donated funds to train a dog for a veteran to Kotuku Foundation Assistance Animals Aotearoa
We are also very happy to inform you that Blind Foundation
Te Tūāpapa o Te Hunga Kāpō has been sponsored money to produce a total of 5 books relating to NZ War animals on Audio. Mark maybe RSA Veterans maybe interested.
We have supplied a replica of Ceasar the WWI dog to the National Army Museum and sponsored its upkeep. Finally
we have provided the Naval Museum with a plaque honouring all naval mascots of the past.
