Relocation fund increases

ABOUT $3500 was raised by Nadi-based Animals Fiji after a fundraiser featuring local singing sensation Knox and Kiwi Tiki Taane last week.

The clinic is seeking to raise $300,000 to relocate from Martintar to a new site.

Animals Fiji co-founder and managing trustee Casey Quimby said this fundraiser drew a lot of support, adding they had so far collected about $66,000.

"Currently, at our Animals Fiji Nadi clinic, we have 47 animals in-house. We reached our highest number of sheltered animals in early April with 95 but with lots of public relations work lately, as well as a sign on the roadside, we are lucky to have had a lot of loving families come in to adopt.

"To help the animals, people can de-sex their dogs or cats to ensure that more unwanted animals are not being born therefore relieving the pressure on us to house or feed surrendered cats, kittens, dogs and puppies."

Interested parties can help Animals Fiji relocate by giving money or in kind via website www.animalsfiji.org or through a Westpac account 9803624577.
