Animal Welfare NGOs Receive Over €75,000 To Continue with their Sterling Work

 

10 Voluntary Organisations which are active in the Animal Welfare sector will be receiving €76,893 in grants so that they can carry on with their sterling work, safeguarding the best interests of animals in Malta and Gozo.

The beneficiaries include animal sanctuaries, organisations that promote the responsibilities which animal owners have, and groups which provide care for animals.

 

 

One of the NGOs which will be benefiting from these funds is the CSAF Sanctuary, which was visited by the Prime Minister’s wife, Dr Lydia Abela – who, from her end, said that animal rights will remain high on her agenda, adding that since they don’t have a voice to tell us what they want to change or what they want to see improved, it is up to us to see that it’s done.

 

 

She also called for a change in the legislation relating to how animals are kept and said that the authorities will also need more resources to ensure proper enforcement against situations where animals are kept in really bad conditions.
