||Dear Members & Friends,
Good greetings to all!
The never ending calls we receive to complain of strays here and there keep coming. Many have asked "How do we get the animals admitted into the shelter?". We listen to their stories before deciding to accept.
Most of our animals at the shelter are abandoned strays brought in by the public. Some are injured in accidents/fights or stricken by disease. The moment they enter the shelter we provide extensive resources to care for their daily needs in providing food, health checks and routine vaccinations etcetera should they be found healthy and suitable to be placed for adoption. We try at great length to help find homes for the many that pass through the shelter.
We are not shy to state that we do not have a "no kill" policy. With this policy, we don’t turn away members of the public who genuinely need help. Anyone who brings in an animal needs to understand very well, that they need to leave it to the SPCA’s discretion. It is for the public to decide if they should or should not leave the animal at the shelter. They are also given the choice to contact other shelters if necessary.
Shelter life for animals is certainly boring. The animals wait and wait for someone to come along to visit or take them out. Maybe it is much better for them to be out as strays to enjoy the freedom they are used to. Not many people are comfortable seeing strays roaming around and it's not that they have no compassion or concern for animals. But then…what will happen next no one knows. Will they get their next meal from kind souls or may need to visit the bins in the neighborhood?
Most people choose to come as there are no other alternatives where they can leave the stray animals. Reason being they are turned away by the so called "no kill" shelters stating that they are full. Some shelters demand a fee and the rescuers can’t afford to contribute.
Again and again, we encourage very much on Responsible Pet Ownership. Adoption is a promise! If you are not prepared to commit, having a pet is not for you. If you do decide postively please Don’t Shop, Don’t Buy/Adopt. Visit shelters to find out how you can help to be close to animals!
