Chained Dog
AWARENESS

CDANZ LogoChained Dog Awareness New Zealand (CDANZ) is a volunteer-run charity that is fighting to end the life-chaining of dogs in New Zealand. There are currently no laws in New Zealand that prevent dog owners from chaining their pet for life – so many dogs live in appalling conditions, without proper care and as a result are euthanized by council, or fade away and die. CDANZ aim to change these laws by creating awareness about the plight of chained dogs. Since 2001, CDANZ has helped hundreds of mistreated dogs. The charity provides education and support to pet owners, to improve the quality of life of chained dogs, and if a dog is relinquished by its owner, CDANZ rehabilitate it then re-home it with a loving ‘forever family’ – so it can have the life it deserves.

CDANZ live by the quote from the mighty Gandhi:

“The greatness of a national and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

Sensitive, The Movie
THE UNTOLD STORY

hsp-elaine-aron

Singer and songwriter Alanis Morissette details her life as a scientifically diagnosed Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) in a film by Emmy award-winning hybrid transmedia agency The GlobalTouch Group, Inc. SENSITIVE — THE UNTOLD STORY, directed by Will Harper, is based on the findings of author Elaine Aron (The Highly Sensitive Person, The Highly Sensitive Child, The Highly Sensitive Person, and others) and looks closely at the the innate temperament trait of high sensitivity in 1991 and the scientific studies behind it. Aron and her husband Dr Arthur Aron are two of the leading scientists studying the psychology of love and close relationships and pioneers in studying sensitivity and love using functional magnetic resonance imaging. A long-time follower of Aron’s work, Morissette contacted the film’s producers and offered to be interviewed for the highly anticipated film, hoping her story would help other HSPs.

“Without having read your book I would have continued to feel like an insane person,” Morisette tells Aron in SENSITIVE — THE UNTOLD STORY.

One in five people are considered highly sensitive and become easily overwhelmed in situations that many would regard as normal. According to research findings, Highly Sensitive Persons are often labeled shy, however, shyness is learned and not innate. Biologists have found high sensitivity in 100 species from fruit flies, birds, and fish to dogs, cats, horses, and primates.

“This trait reflects a certain type of survival strategy, being observant before acting,” Aron says. “The brains of highly sensitive persons (HSPs) actually work a little differently than others, processing and reflecting on information more deeply.”
