This is a precautionary post!!!
Yesterday one of my elderly Covid 19 phoning circle got a telephone call from supposedly “Work and Social Development” asking him as he was a pensioner did he live alone and did he need any help/assistance for shopping etc. He was a bit confused and told the man on the phone what arrangements he had in place.
He rang me and said that he thought it was nice that a government department was concerned about his welfare like that. I didn’t say anything to him but I immediately telephoned and waited approximately thirty minutes on hold on the Police 105 number. They took a note of my concern and then connected me onto another area to report and discuss the matter.
To the best of their knowledge they were not aware of Social Development or WINZ or any other Government Department making
such calls to elderly folks. However it would be noted and looked into.
Has anyone else had an experience similar?
Take care everyone, keep safe and PLEASE follow the rules

The SPCA has been sending out e-mails asking for support as they struggle with remaining in operation during the Lockdown. I received this in my e-mail this morning,

"Dear Michael,

The past few weeks have been a real challenge in every sense of the word. But, one thing has become clear during the COVID-19 outbreak... we are in this fight together and being kind is more important than ever.

I hope you and your whānau are staying safe at home in your bubble. We still don't know what the near future holds, but we know that humans aren’t the only ones impacted by this pandemic – it's animals too.

our SPCA frontline essential workers are still working day-in day-out for the animals.

Today, I wanted to reach out and ask for your support so they can continue their vital work during the lockdown period and beyond.

I understand your personal circumstances may have been impacted by the pandemic, and your wellbeing is important. Please know my request is just for those who are able to help right now.

However, we need as much financial help as possible to support our essential staff as they work in the face of adversity.

the reality is we will struggle to function without income we usually get from our op shops, or from our other forms of fundraising which have come to a sudden halt.

Our vets are still administering necessary treatments. Our inspectors are working hard with emergency call-outs and acting quickly to be there for animals in our communities. Our animal teams are with vulnerable animals who need rehabilitation. All while adapting and enforcing physical distancing and new health and safety rules set up with Level 4 requirements.

SPCA will be there to protect animals today, tomorrow, and beyond the lockdown. That we can promise.


But we can’t do it without you.

Together, we can ensure that animals don’t suffer because of the impact of COVID-19. Please will you stand by our essential workers as they protect vulnerable and sick animals?

Thank you for taking the time to read this email and please stay safe during this time!

Andrea Midgen,

SPCA CEO"

Please consider donating what you can as these people are essential workers too and the Animals are victims in this as well.
