Trivandrum: To improve the quality of life of neglected animals in the city, the Trivandrum branch of People For Animals (PFA) is organising a one day festival today at Christ Church Centenary Hall, Palayam.
The festival christened ‘Fair for Care’ will showcase designer sarees, salwar kameez, kurthis, home appliances and home decors. The intention behind organising this fair is to raise funds to provide basic health care and veterinary treatment for needy animals.
“There are many animals in our city that are sick and often undergo a painful death. Many other animals die due to starvation. We want to give these animals primary health care services, veterinary treatment and sterilisation,” said Leela Latheef, secretary, PFA.
According to her, the fair would raise monetary support for the welfare of these animals, especially for their rescue, shelter, treatment, food and rehabilitation.
“This is the first time we are coming out with a fair. ‘Fair for Care’ is our way for raising funds for our organisation. With the number of inmates in our rescue shelters increasing day by day, we are in need of more funds now. We also hope to create awareness and encourage people to help find homes, nourishment and medical treatment for animals through this Fair,” said Leela Latheef.
People for Animals, also known as PFA is India's largest animal welfare organisation with a nationwide network of 26 hospitals, 165 units and 2.5 Lakh members. We work to rescue and rehabilitate sick and needy animals. PFA aims to have an animal welfare centre in each of the nation's 600 districts.
