Happy New Year Greetings to all!




Adoption Highlights as at end year 2018

Our number of adoptions for the year 2018 reached 111 dogs and cats. Five dogs and five cats were found homes in December.  We sincerely hope to find homes that match with our furry paws in waiting.  We have also had many requests from the public to allow circulation of their pets available for adoption.  Unfortunately, we are unable to heed all requests that come in.  However, we will work out a column to allow circulation of such request on our website only in the near future.



Pet Carnival at Occupy Beach Street


We'd like to thank the Organisers for giving us the opportunity to participate in the above event held on 9th December.  It was indeed a fruitful day and we thank all volunteers involved. We brought two puppies over to the event and they were a hit with kids on that day.




Pet Insurance Scheme

Responsible pet owners always have a strong bonding with their pets.  They will go to all lengths to give them the best at whatever cost as it is heart wrenching to see them in a state when they are unwell.  Over the years, costs of treatment at veterinary clinics has also increased and some owners find it difficult to cope.  We have picked up some information on pet insurance which might be of interest to pet owners.  Please feel free to contact the insurance advisors as listed for more details if you are interested.


Fundraising for SPCA through sale of CNY Cookies

Chinese New Year is about a month away.  We are taking orders for cookies.  Email info@spca-penang.net or call us 042816559 to place your orders.
