Over 100 people attended the 2018 protest outside Warkworth Rodeo! No-one wants to see animal abuse for entertainment anymore!

Whangarei Rodeo Protest 2017

Direct Animal Action joined Whangarei locals to peacefully protest the Mid Northern Rodeo and urge the public to boycott the event. It was a beautiful sunny day and so fabulous to stand up for the animals with a 40 strong group of caring individuals.

Working Bee at Paws Awhile

Direct Animal Action spent some time helping out at Paws Awhile animal sanctuary in Raglan.

Our members helped with planting, weeding, mulching and also did some significant treework reducing large pines overhanging a paddock.

Direct Animal Action activists say rodeos are legalised cruelty and only two weeks ago a bull broke its leg and was euthanised after an event.

Protesters say although rodeos look thrilling, for the animals involved it’s all about fear and distress.
