Thursday 22 October 2013, Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), Suva, Fiji - Kennels at the Fiji Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in Suva received a recent makeover, thanks to the fundraising and volunteer efforts of The Secretariat of the Pacific Community’s Applied Geoscience (SOPAC) Division social club.

The SOPAC social club organized an employee work-a-thon to put a fresh coat of paint on the SPCA pens and, at the same time, raise money for this good cause.

At an employee assembly on October 2nd, the SOPAC division presented a charitable donation of FJ$1000 raised by staff to the SPCA.

SPCA’s Public Relations Officer and Kennel Manager, Irava Raki, expressed her gratitude for the donation and the work carried out by the SOPAC team. ‘It was so great to brighten the dog cages with bright colours. It makes a big difference to the animals,’ she said. ‘Some people think animals don’t have feelings or notice their environment, but they really do!’
