The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has now come out to showcase their animals at the Na Koro Market.

“We have a lot of puppies, kittens’ and grown up animals all waiting for homes,” SPCA executive committee member Seema Deo said.

Yesterday Ms Deo was thankful for the big part children played in adopting animals.

“Bringing SPCA to Na Koro Market encourages people especially children who are very good in convincing their parents to adopt animals,” she said.

Ms Deo said it was also an opportunity for the SPCA to market in the society, because people did not know they existed and what they did.

“People do not really know about SPCA,” she said.

“They do not know what SPCA does, who we are and where office is located.

“Our clinic is based at Walu Bay in Suva and often not many people come there.

“We were encouraged by the Na Koro Market organiser Peter Sipeli to showcase SPCA at the market.”

Ms Deo said this was one way for the society to share to people who might help out.

“What we have found that they may not adopt an animal here but they will come to SPCA during the weekdays and adopt them,” she said.

Ms Deo is urging people to come to SPCA at 155 Foster Road in Walu Bay and adopt the animals.
