Clinic's future uncertain

ANIMALS Fiji Nadi Clinic and its hairy tenants are facing an uncertain future after the centre was asked to vacate its present site.

In a statement, the clinic revealed it has until June 12 to find new land and a new building to conduct its clinics or it would be forced to close.

The clinic provides emergency care and preventative care for sick and injured animals. It also plays a vital role in the management and control of Fiji's feral cat and dog populations.

"Since its doors opened two years ago, our Nadi clinic has treated approximately 6500 injured animals, re-homed 960 abandoned pets and de-sexed around 2300 cats and dogs," it said in a statement. The clinic has launched a 'Buy a Brick' campaign in its search for $300,000 to purchase land and a new base.

Donation towards the cause can be deposited in the clinic's Westpac Bank account — West Charity Trust Society on 9803624577.
