Cluny Animal Trust
The Cluny Animal Trust is an independent, non-govermental veterinary welfare organization established in February 2011 to serve the needs of animals owned by impoverished residents of the Eastern Free State. The trust stems from Dr. Katherine Barker’s sterilisation program established in 2004 and is currently run from her small private veterinary clinic in Fouriesburg.
The Cluny Animal Trust aims:
- To end the needless suffering of animals by providing veterinary treatment
- To educate owners in proper animal care, feeding and preventative treatment
- To establish an independent, small animal hospital and a mobile clinic
- To sterilise animals to prevent unwanted litters
The ongoing care of animals is a major part of their work. This involves sterilisation, de-worming, inoculation and preventative measure for ticks and fleas. All veterinary procedures are however available.
Most importantly, they endeavour to provide owners with all the information that they need to care for their animals properly.
They are a small force with an enormous task are grateful for any and all offers to assist: Time, effort, find, even ideas are more than welcome.
