||Dear Members and Friends,
Good greetings to all!
Migration of pets
We often get requests to rehome pets where pet owners need to migrate to another place be it local or overseas. We also get reports where pets are left abandoned by their owners too when they leave Malaysia! This can be very traumatic to the pets especially when they are left at shelters. They can be subjected to lots of stress and depression as well. At the SPCA, we highly recommend that expatriates/foreigners don’t indulge in adopting pets if they are not staying permanently in Malaysia. Of course we would have no qualms should one be able to promise us that the pet adopted will be leaving together with you to your home country. People who are unable to take their pet back when they leave should consider volunteering their time to help out at shelters, or foster animals. We are delighted indeed when adopters can guarantee to take their pet home with them whenever they leave.
We are very happy to receive an email note as below from our adopter who adopted Tofu now named Toffi.
“Dear SPCA team
We adopted Toffi 2 years ago from you.(October 24th 2020) She was formerly called Tofu.
Toffi adapted really well into Germany, Regensburg. Here it's so easy to bring your dog almost everywhere (bakery ,shops, all restaurants, bus....all allowed).
As we are living next to a river she really likes to look for the fishes. The water is crystal clear, but of course not as warm as the ocean where she used to swim in Penang. She is missing the monkeys but always looks for the squirrels. The monitor lizard she was chasing in Penang changed now into rabbit and deer.
The only thing she's really struggling with is the weather. Hopefully she will get a winter fur.
We are super happy that we could bring her with us though the paper work for the flight was a lot, but the transition worked fine for her. She came with Qatar Airways”.
