  Dear Members & Friends,


Greetings from the SPCA Penang!

Long Stay Residents

People commonly think that as a dog grows bigger it is old and would rather not think of adopting. Just because of their size, it doesn’t mean that they are no longer suitable to fit into your family. Many people feel that it is best to get a puppy to start with, but it may not always be true. Having a puppy to start with is fun, but then one needs a little more time to nurture them. Dogs work for people in many ways. Should you need a dog which has less teething troubles, come visit us and adopt one of these which have been with us for a long period of time. The reason for adopting an adult dog is self-explanatory. You can view all the dogs currently available for adoption here.




Animal Adoption
In October six cats and four dogs made way into their new homes. We are happy to note the increase in new feline pet owners as compared to the past years.


Awareness on Animal Welfare

SPCA receives many requests from students to collaborate, be it in creating awareness on animal welfare or organizing fundraising to support our cause. It is indeed a privilege to collaborate with students to support each other on a 'win win' situation.

We would like to thank the groups of students from Sentral College Penang namely the Tourism Management & Certificate in Business and Information Technology for their efforts in raising funds for the shelter.

Also our continued thanks to Vettons.com, an online sales store, for continuing to send us care packages in celebration of their 1st anniversary. Care to support, kindly visit www.vettons.com.



SPCA would like to put on record the demise of our very long time supporter Ms. Louise Marie Balhetchet aka Ms. Louise Ng. The late Louise Ng had been an ardent supporter of SPCA during our days at Jalan Bulan. She has SPCA in her heart and had indeed left us a legacy. May Her Soul Rest In Peace.

The SPCA Committee and staff would like to express its deepest condolences to her brother Mr. Charles Austin Ng and family.
