Help needed to build Animal Centre

The Animal Rights & Rescue Group has worked hard over the past 12 years rescuing and rehousing thousands of unwanted, neglected and abandoned dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and the odd rabbit, rat and peacock! Over the past few years, ARRG has campaigned for an Animal Centre to enable many more companion animals to be rescued, and to help more pet owners facing tough times. Currently we operate with an office, op-shop and in-home foster carers (who are always full). Finally, the land has been obtained and a development application approved. What is now needed is the help of skilled and semi-skilled trades people to help complete the Centre, so that ARRG can stay within its limited budget.

The support of the public has been tremendous over the past few years (ARRG is a totally self funded not-for-profit charity), and the goal of the regions first Animal Centre is within reach. All donations over $2 are tax deductible, but it is physical help we now need. If you have even a small amount of spare time, or surplus/discounted/free products please contact us! While the Centre will be built in Lismore, ARRG will continue its work across the whole Far North Coast.

Please phone Barbara or Suzanne at ARRG on 6622 1881 or 0432 890 687 if you can help out in any way. Visit for more information and to view many of our rescued pets. As the saying goes, many hands make light work.

Rosanna has designs on female taboo

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
