APS receives vital asset to assist with mission

The Animal Protection Society (A.P.S.) recently received a vehicle that will serve as a vital asset in the organisation’s mission to enhance outreach services and provide essential veterinary care to needy animals.
The vehicle was purchased through a grant of USD$75,807 (approximately SAT$202,000) from Japan’s Grant Assistance for Grass–Roots Human Security Projects (G.G.P.).
Japan’s Ambassador to Samoa, Keisuke Senta, said his government recognises the significant role that Non – Governmental Organisations such as A.P.S. play in safeguarding the welfare and protection of animals.
Samoa too is a nation known for its deep appreciation for nature and the importance it plays on coexisting harmoniously with all living beings he said.
As such, their understanding of the crucial role that animals play in the ecosystem, and lives to ensure their well-being and to provide them with the care they require is a responsibility that Japan takes seriously the ambassador further explained.
