Dear Members & Friends,
Greetings from the SPCA Penang!
Everyone usually gets excited the moment they step into a shelter or a pet shop. Be it to visit or looking into giving the animals available a second chance. Do think carefully and choose wisely as the animal decided upon will be one’s responsibility for the lifetime of the animal adopted or purchased. Be aware of the many conditions to be considered before keeping a pet.
1. Be sure that everyone in the family is happy to have a pet.
2. Check if there is anyone in the family with a history of allergies.
3. Are you able to give time to the pet? Most important, be aware that a cat /dog’s lifespan is beyond 10 years. Are you able to commit?
4. Consider your place of dwelling. If you are renting, do consult your landlord to check if you are allowed to keep a pet.
5. Do I have any alternatives if I am not able to keep the pet after some time? It is not easy to rehome an adult dog or cat as they may not be able to adapt to a new environment.
6. If you already have a pet and need another as a companion, do seek permission from the shelter you visit to allow your pet to socialize with the one you decided on before taking it home.
7. Do register your pet with a veterinarian who you and your pet is comfortable with for routine visits and emergencies.
Be sure to visit your nearest shelter to adopt one should you be able to fulfill all these conditions with a smile! Come visit Cooper, Leo, Mango, Winnie, Maisie and Roopsie!
