 BE MORE CARING TOWARDS YOUR PET ANIMALS AT HOME!

 

Daily, it saddens us to hear and receive reports of so many pet animals being lost /abandoned and or picked up by someone and hoping to reunite with its owner. We understand your loss. However, please do exercise more care when you indulge in keeping one.

We just had a terrier dog as below dumped into our compound in broad daylight. There are lots of responsibilities involved in keeping pets. Loving animals is not just having one or more at home. They need your care and understanding. Your commitment is of utmost importance. Don't adopt/buy just because you are being bothered too much by your children and/or family members into keeping one. Someone has to confidently say 'no' to owning pets when all conditions are not met within the family. Owning one and to find that you are not able to continue caring for the animals will be a burden to animal shelters. Animal shelters are flooded with animals. Again and again, animal shelters are not the best place to shut them up for life. Think again!

Do you know his owner?

Get these if you are not able to provide pets daily care and needs. No commitment needed except cuddling all day long and also while one sleeps!

 

ADOPTION HIGHLIGHTS
Though February is a short month, we were still lucky to have the same number of animals adopted as in the previous month. A total of 6 dogs and 3 cats were rehomed. Meet our furry paws with their happy owners.

  

  
 

CREMATION OF CARCASSES
For the general public's info, SPCA has received a letter from the MBPP Engineering Department that due to complaints against burning at the incinerator, all carcass cremations had been stopped. This operation will only continue until such time as the technical issues have been sorted out with the Department of Environment. In the meantime, SPCA expresses regret that all carcasses will have to be sent to the landfill. Should pet owners need other arrangements please call the SPCA for advice. We sincerely hope that the MBPP Engineering Department could speed up this process to get their problems solved rapidly between the agencies involved.
 

EVENTS HAPPENING

Help in whichever way you can to encourage adoption of animals from shelters and pass the message on: ADOPT, DON'T BUY!


Syiok Sendiri Show at Penangpac Stage 1 Straits Quay - 3rd June, 2017 at 8.30 p.m.
We have been given some tickets for distribution by a generous and kind hearted sponsor. Minimum donation for entry to the show is RM30 per ticket. Should you like to purchase the tickets from the SPCA, kindly call us at 2816559/016-4166559 during office hours.

 

SPCA VOLUNTEER MONTHLY BRIEFING
We are glad to note that we have gained momentum in the recruitment of more new volunteers monthly. Even though these volunteers may/may not turned up regularly, it is our wish that they get at least some awareness and understand the work and activities of the society, in particular why a 'no kill' is not in the SPCA's policy. This is not easy to overcome by most and not even by the staff force at times.

The month has been filled with student visits by universities and colleges fulfilling their hours with their co-curricular activities. The latest group to join us in our activities are students from Segi College and Wawasan Open University.

 

WISH LIST FOR SPCA
We just wish for the continuous flow of donations in cash and in kind coming in regularly to minimize our expenditure in the running of our SPCA activities for the welfare of the animals.

SPCA has received another camera for SPCA to carry out its field work on inspection of animal cruelty. Thanks to YB Lim Siew Khim for answering our appeal.

Visit to SPCA: We welcomed this group of students from St. Christopher International School of Penang who made a visit, in particular to discuss on the Society's needs and their intention to raise funds for the SPCA during the month.

To know more on how you can help, please call or email.

SPCA TEAM
Thank you.
