All dogs released will be neutered and the costs shall be borne by the owners as well.
Dogs not claimed within 24 hours will be dealt with by the Ministry of Agriculture & SPCA as they consider appropriate and no liability claims shall be attached to the Suva City Council, Ministry of Agriculture & the SPCA including any employee or agent thereof, arising out of this stray dog trapping exercise.
