  Dear Members & Friends,

 

Greetings from the SPCA Penang!

Reports on Animal Cruelty

 

No matter where you are, should you happen to witness any acts of cruelty in Malaysia, you can now officially report it by clicking on the link below to allow the authorities to proceed with the investigation. http://akh.dvs.gov.my/

Remember, it is very important to upload any supporting evidence to help with the investigation. Your reluctance to leave any details  will not help. Report without fear should you want to speak up for the animals and not allow the perpetrator of any cruel act to go scot-free. It is unfortunate that for many cases of stray animals that we hear of and who died through poisoning, the perpetrator cannot be charged due to lack of witnesses/evidence.

You can make a difference.

 

Animal Adoptions

In April we had 13 cats and dogs leave the shelter. Our long time canine residents Blue, Sky and Angel were all adopted. Angel who was with us for nearly 2 years was not prepared to leave the shelter. She had to be coaxed and patiently dragged out to get in to her new owner's vehicle! There are a few more long stay canine residents which we hope can be rehomed soon. To check them out, do visit our adoption gallery at www.spca-penang.net

Luna, the pup which came in with very unhealthy skin condition was given a second chance. We'd like to thank our volunteer Fran for her hard work and efforts in helping to foster and continue with the treatment.

Luna has now grown into a beautiful, healthy girl. Here are her before & after photos. She is now happy in her adoptive home.

 

Volunteer Service

We are beginning to receive requests/visits from colleges, universities and companies for community service etc. SPCA is willing to help the students/employees fulfil their requirements for community service. However, in view of the present pandemic, there will be a limit on the number of people allowed. During April, we had students from University Sarawak Malaysia doing a PSA filming project. You can view their video here PSA - Save The Strays.

Also students from IPK College in Bukit Mertajam presenting their donation from in-house fundraising:

And students from Mahsa University Sungai Petani, School of Physiotherapy came to do community service:

Our Volunteer Briefing for the month of May and June have been filled up. We wish to remind those coming for the May 15th briefing to be punctual as the briefing will start at 9 a.m. sharp.

 

 

Appreciation
We thank Ms. Lily Tan for her contribution of Brewers Yeast and Advantage for cats.
 

 

Wish List for the month of May

1. Food and vitamins for the animals are needed daily for our paw friends.

2. We would be grateful to receive any old smart phone that you may no longer be using.

 

Any form of help in kind or cash is most needed. Do give us a call to discuss

 

Thank you
