ANIMALS Fiji Nadi Clinic and Shelter have managed to collect about $50,000 in their bid to raise $300,000 for their relocation.
A press release from the organisation yesterday said the amount collected was about 15 per cent of the fundraising target.
"We require these funds because we urgently need to secure a small plot of land and to build a basic clinic and emergency animal shelter," the statement said.
"It is a long, hard battle for survival but we are determined that the animals of Fiji will have a place to go when they are sick, injured and in pain.
"With a shortfall of funds just six weeks out from our eviction date, we are so grateful that our current landlord has extended us an additional three months at our current location. This is a temporary reprieve and gives us until September 12 — roughly 152 more days to raise the funds.
"We are requesting members of the public to help us and animals receive the care they need and live the life they deserve.
