The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” – Mahatma Gandhi.

Education (particularly of Youth)

Promoting kindness towards animals has been an ongoing effort taken by SPCA Penang. It is through education whereby we teach the public about prevention of cruelty, pet ownership and responsibility. We have posters, banners, pamphlets with the appropriate message distributed to the public. It is imperative that our next generation be taught about prevention of cruelty to animals. We hold educational talks in schools to educate and teach children. We also hold various educational activities for children too.

We do accommodate school children to visit our compound. Such educational field trips provide an excellent experience for the children to learn about animals. We provide a briefing to the children, they are then guided to take a short tour in our compound. The kids will have an opportunity to interact with the animals. There are some school children who make arrangements through various organizations to participate as volunteers during a day trip to our shelter too. If you are keen to get your school or organization to be part of this program, give us a call (04 281 6559) or email ( to make the arrangement.
