  Dear Members & Friends,

 

Greetings from the SPCA Penang!

 

At the moment there seems to be no end in sight for the pandemic to ease. Whatever it takes, we hope to see a good light at the end of the tunnel and hope our herd immunity can be achieved through the vaccination program for all.

Our paw friends at the shelter seem to have lost touch with the human race for almost two months now. However, their spirits are not dampened as their daily needs are taken care of. We gratefully thank their kind hearted friends who offered help in their own way remotely.

 


 

Wishlist for the month

 

We appeal to all friends and animal lovers for their generosity in sending their donations when you have charity in mind towards animal welfare. At this tough time, all NGOs are in need of funds to help them through to carry on with their work and mission. To make a donation online transfer, our account numbers are as follows:

 

1. MAYBANK 5074 3338 3428 in the name of Soc for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or CIMB 8004040996 at SPCA PENANG

2. You can also scan through TNG EWALLET in the name of SPCA Penang

3. All methods of donations including PayPal can be viewed here at our website.

4. Any donation in kind, like pet food etc can be sent direct through a logistic company or you can call us for further discussion.

 

Thank you all.

 


 

Shelter visits

 

Sorry, but at the moment no visitors or volunteers are allowed at the shelter.  We do hope we can welcome you soon.

 

Stay Safe, Stay Home

 

 

 

Acknowledgements

From the SPCA desk, we would like to acknowledge with thanks the support from:

Twelve members of Pandemic Group at Disted College who organized a Charity Bake Sale. From the sale they have arranged to purchase our daily needs of pet food etc for the animals at the shelter and are also giving a monetary donation.

 

Vettons.com an online sales store has pledged to send us care packages in celebration of their 1st anniversary. Care to support, kindly visit www.vettons.com.

 

Relax has launched an online sales campaign themed "You save 10%, We donate 10%" offered storewide on the brand name "Relax Bottles". This campaign will end on 31st July. These items can also be purchased at various Department Stores such as AEON, Parkson, HomePro etc. Do visit their website at www.relaxbottles.com.

 

Foo Hung Shen and team from INTI College for their efforts in raising awareness on animals, their team raised RM310.

 

Though we are not able to entertain visitors physically, the administrative staffs have been busy answering queries and giving advice via telephone calls. SPCA has also been working closely online with our Student Intern Ms Sylvia Ruth from KDU College to help produce educational articles to create awareness. We've always had third party animal welfare articles on our website but with this project we aim to make them applicable to keeping pets in Malaysia - many of the third party articles did not do this. You can access them here (it's a growing list!).

1. Responsible Pet Ownership

2. Keeping Pets in Apartment – What you should be aware of

3. Feeding Strays and Life as strays etc…

We hope she will be able to work closely with the animals at the shelter too when the MCO is lifted.

 

 

 

Adoption
Though we received no adoptions during the FMCO period, we would like to record that five pets found new homes through our volunteer fosterers. These are kittens and pups which were fostered and their details shared via posts on the social media for adoptions. We thank our fosterers for their efforts.
 

 

Announcements

1. We would like to inform you all that we are now on LinkedIn. Thanks to our volunteer Intan Ali for setting up the page. You can follow us here.

2. Polymer Pet Tag – To keep your pet safe.

We are no longer taking orders for aluminum ID Tags. Our supplier has found a better and more durable quality tag made of Polymer material at the same price. To place your orders kindly visit our shop online.
