Gozo SPCA marks Betty Berrys retirement with presentation
|Email item||Print item||
During the recent Annual General Meeting of Gozo SPCA the Chairman Joseph Camilleri, on behalf of friends and supporters, made a presentation to Betty Berry, who was retiring as Manager of the Rescue and Rehoming Centre. During Mrs Berry’s seven years as Manager over 2,500 abandoned animals were picked up, many being rehomed and thousands more neutered. In her final report she spoke of her disappointment that the site ear-marked for the new Centre had not been confirmed before her retirement.
However this week Gozo SPCA’s Chairman was informed that personnel from the Ministry for Gozo and MEPA are resolutely working together on the chosen site for the new premises; all parties concerned are optimistic about a successful outcome of a meeting scheduled for this week.
In the mean time, Gozo SPCA is still picking up abandoned and injured cats and kittens; it is also rescuing ill and injured dogs, but is not picking up healthy stray dogs, owing to the lack of accommodation in the totally inadequate current premises.
Anybody taking a stray dog off the street in Gozo into their home, or who are willing to foster a dog, will receive every assistance from Gozo SPCA with the cost of the treatment of parasites, neutering, vaccinations, etc., as well as advice and support.
