With this in mind, Animals Alive, a non-charitable organisation, has embarked on a project to rehabilitate its animal sanctuary in Oropouche.
A fund-raising event would be held on Sunday.
Co-ordinator Dr Kavita Kawal is hoping that the sanctuary would be reconstructed to house mainly cats and dogs which she said are subject to all types of abuses.
Animals Alive is staging the fund raiser in conjunction with Bechtel International and Junior Sammy Contractors Limited.
Kawal said in addition to the fund raiser, Animals Alive has held discussions with two secondary schools with a view to conducting education drives.
“We hope that more students and parents would become involved,” Kawal said. The Animals Alive sanctuary is located at Ralph Narine Trace, Oropouche.
Minister of Local Government Hazel Manning is expected to attend.
