Photos: Dog's day out in Moerewa

Dogs of all shapes and sizes converged on Simson Park in Moerewa on Friday for Ngā Kurī Auau o Moerewa, a Far North District Council initiative in which dog owners were given free microchipping, neutering and registration. The SPCA and a team of vets were also on hand offering pet health checks and free parvo vaccinations. It was the council’s third such dog day following the success of previous events in Kaikohe and Kaitaia. Peter de Graaf met a few of the pooches waiting patiently in line for their turn.
