As part of its sustained CSR intervention, Airports of Mauritius Co. Ltd has partnered with the Mauritius Society for Animal Welfare (MSWA) for a large scale sensitisation and animal sterilisation campaign which will be conducted in more than 15 villages in the south-east region of Mauritius. Dog and cat owners will have the possibility of having their animals sterilised, treated and vaccinated from 25 September to 09 October 2016 at the MSAW Clinic at Union Park, Rose Belle.
An information and sensitisation campaign is also scheduled to start as from 13 September 2016 and will aim at providing pet owners with guidance on ways of taking proper care of their animals. It has been noted that sterilisation of cats and dogs help to increase their life span and resistance to certain diseases.
In so doing, the MSAW and AML hope to reduce the population of stray animals, while contributing to the welfare of these domestic pets.
