Jordan clinic opens
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, April 2007:
Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan on March 19, 2007 opened
the Garden Sanctuary for Animal Welfare Center in Amman, to provide
free veterinary care to the animals of farmers and villagers.
Directed by Margaret Ledger, co-founder of the Humane Center for
Animal Welfare, the center will be funded for two years by the World
Society for the Protection of Animals, which has been active in
Jordan since 2004. The Brooke Hospital for Animals has operated an
equine clinic and a mobile unit in Jordan since 1988, and the
Society for Protecting Animals Abroad, involved in Jordan since
1991, now operates two clinics and four mobile units in Jordan.
