THE clock is ticking for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) to find a new home.
The charity has to relocate before its current lease in Mount Vernon Road, where it has been based since 1984, expires in October 2012.
And while the SPCA has been sourcing alternative locations for its office, clinic and shelter for about 200 abandoned dogs, cats, rabbits and even guinea pigs, it is concerned that time is running out.
PS from ADS: haiz... All the poor dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters and other small animals have already no home, but now, they're at risk of losing their "temporally home" too! felt sad and sympathy for them!
