Vets take emergency calls

THE Western Division's only animal clinic and shelter is now operating on an emergency-only basis after a notice to vacate expired on Monday.

Animals Fiji, which is operated by the West Charity Trust Society, was issued a notice in March to vacate the premises by June 30 as the landlord wished to sell the property.

Co-trustee Casey Quimby said they would operate on such basis until construction works on their interim site at Namaka was completed in three to four weeks time.

She said they had 30 animals in their care.

"Our temporary site is on loan to us for free from Fiji Bandag for one year," she said.

Trustees and management have spent the past three months fundraising to establish a permanent facility for the clinic and have managed to raise just over $115,000 of their $300,000 target.
