Dimapur, July 16: The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in a joint venture with Veterinary Department today conducted free anti-rabies camp at Indisen Panchayat Hall and Aokong Community Hall respectively.
The objective of the camp was to create awareness among people to love and take care of animals.
Talking about the initiative and about SPCA, Vice President N Joseph Lemtur and Executive Secretary Marian Rao expressed their disappointment saying that the state government is not providing adequate land and other facilities to the society for constructing infirmaries and animal shelter though as per the directives of Supreme Court, every district should have one SPCA to prevent cruelty to animals.
Lemtur said that at present the Chief Veterinary Officer (CVO) Dimapur has provided space for the much needed SPAC on temporary basis which was officially launched 2016, located at CVO office complex, Burma Camp.
He also said that with the contributions of various NGOs and CVO, SPAC in Nagaland has been trying to curb the increasing number of animal cruelty cases where about 100 members have been registered and therefore as its first initiative the camp was organized and it will continue to create awareness even in the days to come.
