Abandoned animals a concern

Shayal Devi
Thursday, July 24, 2014

DESPITE operating on an emergency basis with limited resources, Animals Fiji's Nadi clinic continues to receive cases of abandoned animals.

The organisation said 30 puppies were dropped off at the clinic's temporary base in Namaka, Nadi, last week.

This has increased the number of animals at the centre to 70.

"Toward the end of this week, we will have a functioning clinic built from shipping containers on temporary borrowed land," Animals Fiji said.

"Doors were added to the shipping containers last Friday. We are currently housing approximately 70 animals so in addition to fundraising for our permanent home, we are dealing with the continual cost of operating the shelter part of our clinic.

"Much of this cost is covered by the wonderful donations of supplies and money that continue to come in as well as our 'Buy a Brick' campaign funds."
