The University of the South Pacific (USP) Lautoka Campus is helping raise awareness of animal welfare in the country.

In partnership with the Pacific Animal Shelter and Hospital (PASH) and sponsored by Viti Rottweilers, the campus held an event recently to help raise funds to assist PASH.

Lautoka Campus Director, Pramila Devi says apart from providing tertiary education, USP is keen to engage in various Continuing and Community Education programmes to help uplift the standards of living in local communities.

The PASH fundraiser is one such project.

PASH was founded in April 2019 in Legalega, Nadi, by founder and trustee, Marie Peyman.

Delayed by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, PASH hope to start in-house community programmes from the first quarter of 2021, providing education, especially for children, in animal welfare and hope to provide advanced medical care in the country.

PASH has adopted around 420 animals at their shelter who are provided the best medical care.

It also provided Fiji with its first boarding facility for cats and dogs.
