Gozo SPCA celebrates 40 years of caring for animals
It is 40 years this year since Gozo SPCA was founded by a British resident Jane Sedgfield. She was concerned by the number of stray cats and dogs in Gozo and also at the difficulties of finding veterinary care for companion animals. The results of her initiative and the work of many others who have followed in her footsteps can be seen all around us today in greatly reduced numbers of stray dogs and feral cats.
To mark this anniversary Gozo SPCA is holding an exhibition at the Ministry for Gozo Exhibition Hall, St Francis Square, Victoria, from Wednesday 27th April to Tuesday 3rd May. The exhibition will be officially opened by the Minister for Gozo, Dr Anton Refalo on Wednesday 27th April at 2.00 pm and on Saturday 30th April Her Excellency, The President of Malta, Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, will visit the exhibition.
The exhibition will feature work by Gozitan school children as well as illustrating the work done by Gozo SPCA over the last 40 years.
Gozo SPCA would like to thank the following organisations for sponsoring the event :
Borg Cardona (Royal Canin),
Vini e Capricci (Abrahams),
Lord Chambray brewery.
Also Sir MA Refalo Sixth form for help with printing of the exhibition poster.
The exhibition will be open from 09.00 – 16.30 each day apart from the last day Tuesday 3rd May when it will close at 13.00.
