Jet Park Joins Forces with Auckland SPCA
Jet Park Hotel near Auckland Airport is pleased to announce it is now a major sponsor of Auckland SPCA.
Jet Park Directors Liz Herrmann and John Lautere have been avid supporters of the SPCA in both South Africa and here in
“SPCA is a cause close to our hearts, and has long been the chosen charity of Jet Park Hotel and Conference Centre,”
says Liz. “We both believe in supporting the local community and think the work of the SPCA is so important, so we are
really pleased to make the partnership official.”
Jet Park, which is situated across the road from Auckland SPCA, has had an unofficial involvement with Auckland SPCA
that has grown over the years, from supporting them with donations of old newspapers for their kennels, to participating
in “Round the Bays” to raise funds, and donating and selling nearly 1400 cupcakes for the SPCA’s recent Cupcake Day
fundraiser. Shala, a labrador/collie cross, and Maffie, a beagle, are both former Auckland SPCA residents rescued by Liz
Now that it is an official sponsor, Jet Park’s financial support is critical in helping the SPCA, which cared for
approximately 22,000 animals last year, yet receives no automatic funding from the government and relies on community
and corporate supporters to fund all its services and activity.
“This sponsorship will make a real and tangible difference to animals in the Auckland region, so we are thrilled that
Jet Park has come on board,” says Auckland SPCA’s Marketing and Fundraising Manager Rona Booth.
