  Dear Members & Friends,


Greetings from the SPCA Penang!


We never know when this pandemic Covid 19 is going to clear. For a while, we thought we would be slowly beginning to return to the community coming in here, be it visiting or volunteering. And, we are now caught with the third wave. In view of this, we appreciate very much if visitors could kindly call us for an appointment during our opening hours between 10 a.m. to 12.30 p.m., 2-4.30 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and on Sat. 10 a.m. -12.30 p.m. 

SPCA would also like to advise all visitors with the intention to adopt, please be prepared to bring along the necessary accessories like a collar, leash and/or a pet carrier.




Our Volunteers from afar


Our volunteers Teppo and Virpi from Finland visit Penang yearly at this time of the year. They spend most of their time at the shelter interacting with all our animals almost daily while here. Due to the pandemic Covid 19, for the first time for nine years the staff and animals at the shelter will miss their company.



"We really miss Penang, sun, food, people and our furry friends. We'd love to come back there, but Malaysia is unlikely to open borders any time soon".


To you Teppo and Virpi 'STAY SAFE, STAY HEALTHY' and God willing, we shall see you both next year.



Adoption Highlights

Our adoptions for October saw an increase for cats - and of course the number of cats received has also gone up by many fold. The trap, neuter and return method is advocated whenever the public is willing to do this.

We had six cats and five dogs find new homes during the month.



News from our adoptees

SPCA Adoptee Meti aka Uyu (??,wooyoo) has happily settled in her new home. Her parents say

"All is good, we are happy with Uyu. Love her very much!"


Haku, now known as Hiro, has turned 1 year old celebrating his birthday with his family members.


Lucky needs to be reunited
This is how his story goes.... Lucky was picked up just after the Chinese New Year and before the MCO somewhere in Green Lane. He was cared for by the finder. Unfortunately, due to his skin problems the finder has now surrendered Lucky to us. If you happen to know who the rightful owner is, kindly help him reunite.


Volunteer Briefing
Our next Volunteer Briefing will be held on 21st November at 9 a.m. sharp. Due to social distancing, we have limited to ten places for each briefing. Places for this November briefing date are filled up. We wish to remind those who have signed up to be punctual and do inform early should there be any cancellation. For future briefings, you can register here.

2. SEGI COLLEGE Pet Awareness Campaign through facebook

3. Students from BRICKFIELD ASIA COLLEGE `The Helping Hand’ campaign through facebook and instagram

4. All individuals who have donated in cash or in kind
