Always wanted to know why people have a vegan or veggie lifestyle?  Find out the “whys and hows” of adopting a purely plant based diet and learn about the benefits of doing so for you, the environment and other animals.  Enjoy good food and the company of others also exploring changing their lifestyle and determine for yourself how easy it is.

PS.  There has been a lot of interest in these workshops, so get in quick!  Looking forward to seeing you there and helping you on your journey.

As a 10 year old I want to share with the world how proud I am to be vegetarian and that other kids can be too without being ashamed. I’m going to open an online clothing store that sells items that tell everyone just that. will have tshirts and other items which announce loud and proud that “I’m a kid and cruelty free”. I would like the website to become more over time, to be a resource kids can turn to for information and support but for now the goal is awareness of animal cruelty and I will be using profits to support animal welfare charities like Safe.

I need to raise $1500 towards costs such as clothing and website design, product samples, photography and advertising.

Home swap for holidays

Lovely three bedroom home available in Raglan (near the town). The owners would like to offer their home for a holiday swap somewhere (NZ or overseas).

They are vegan, so people would need to commit to not cooking or having animal based foods in the house.

They have two cats and a chicken (rescue from pot), in its own luxury house and enclosure, (which  would need feeding with food supplied).

They have an organic vege garden and fruit trees, depending on season, with food available to use.

The house is not really suitable for small children as it is three levels and the back section is not fenced.

Their son (who is also vegan) lives up the road, and could be contacted with any concerns.

Caretaker for The Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary Wanted

Compassionate caretaker wanted!

We have a new position at The Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary for a caretaker who wants to save animal lives!

We are an animal rights sanctuary on 26 acres of land at ?taki Forks. Currently we have just 3 permanent human residents, and we need more help as we are now caring for over 160 animals

So we have decide to look for an additional caretaker to live at the sanctuary, care for animals and work on projects to improve the sanctuary. Caretakers will be committed to helping animals and willing to follow a vegan diet while on the sanctuary land. You will be a practical person who is good with animals – we care for ex-battery hens, cows, sheep, goats, horses, roosters, pigs, geese, cats and dogs. Ideally you will have your driver’s license, animal care skills and/or building skills too!

We suggest that anyone interested in being a caretaker lives at the sanctuary for an initial trial period of one week. If everything works out for you and us, you will move into the sanctuary house as a caretaker (we have a bedroom set aside for this, so you will have your own room). It’s a sunny warm space with awesome views, including a little patch of sea! We tend to be a busy place during summer (with WWOOFers, volunteers etc staying), but it is much quieter during the winter months. You will have free accommodation, but contribute to power bills and provide your own (vegan) food, supplemented by our organic vege gardens. You will also spend 15 to 20 hours a week caring for animals and working on sanctuary projects. The position is not paid, but we may be able to offer some part-time paid work at our new ?taki Opportunity for Animals op shop (opening soon!).

The Black Sheep supports animal liberation, and is opposed to all forms of oppression — check us out at

Please email us at if you are interested. We’d love to hear from you!
