SHORTLAND STREET ACTOR RESCUES SINBAD Shortland Street’s Lee Donoghue is supporting the work of the SPCA Auckland by giving a former stray a new forever home. Lee, who plays Hunter McKay on the New Zealand serial drama, adopted Sinbad the cat last Friday. Sinbad came to the SPCA Auckland as a stray after he was found wandering the streets of Manurewa. He was de-sexed at the Animal Village and also underwent an operation to remove his right eye. “Sinbad may only have one eye but that didn’t slow him down at all,” says Martin MacKenzie, marketing manager. “He was nicknamed ‘action man’ by the cattery staff because he is so full of life and energy. They are happy he has found someone to give him lots of love and let him make mischief.” The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is New Zealand’s oldest and most respected animal welfare organisation, providing service to the animals of Auckland since 1883. The SPCA Auckland is open for adoptions from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. seven days a week and right now they are being inundated with puppies and kittens, not to mention cats and dogs of all shapes and sizes that need a forever home. SPCA Auckland is located at 50 Westney Road, Mangere, or you can visit their website To help the SPCA Auckland continue their work in uniting animals like Sinbad with their new family, why not get involved in the Angels for Animals street appeal – check out their website\animals to register online.
