People may now drop off unwanted, stray or found cats or dogs at the Shelter at any time of the day or night.
This new animal cage (Kouchi pa Bestia), outside the gate to the Shelter, has two separate compartments with water bowls and it’s checked every few hours during the day.
Hopefully, people will put their unwanted animals in the cage rather than dumping them in the mondi or by the side of the road. The Shelter receives an average of 1,200 animals each year.
Thanks to Valerie’s Airport shop for providing the materials and to the Shelter staff and volunteers who provided the labor to build the cage. As of last week, nine dogs and one cat had been put in the cage. ”
