Queen heads animal shelter

THERE is no question that Priscilla Reddy is the perfect choice as manager for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) facility in Walu Bay.

Miss Reddy is the reigning Miss Hibiscus, and after advocating for animal welfare at the festival, her experience and knowledge on the topic is unquestionable.

SPCA president Deepak Rathod feels extremely grateful to have someone of Ms Reddy's calibre as manager.

"She has a strong background in customer service, training and management plus the added bonus of being a volunteer for the SPCA for almost two years and a customer for over five years," Mr Rathod said.

"Her passion for animals is exemplary and we know she will bring major changes to the operations of the SPCA."

The SPCA has undergone several changes since November 2013, including setting up a new executive committee whose members are fully committed to supporting Ms Reddy.

The primary aims of SPCA Fiji are to: provide veterinary care for owned and stray animals; shelter and provide homes for suitable animals; as well as providing animal welfare education for schools and communities.

Major works are in the pipeline and further details will be released in the near future.
