Missing PetsAlmost everyday we received reports of missing pets(dog or cats) be it via phone calls, emails, call personally at our doorstep. The most common reasons given are:
The top two are the lucky ones - they have been re-united with their owners. The bottom two are still at our shelter waiting for their owners to collect them. To avoid this from happening, always let your dog wear a collar with an identification tag (if possible with your contact no. and your pet's name) at all times. Though we do not have a central data base collection system where we could trace pet owners yet here in Malaysia, a microchip for your pet is still highly recommended. Please ask your veterinarian for this service.
|Adoption Highlights We have passed another half year and our adoption figures for cats and dogs at the shelter for the first six months of 2013 reached 67 - versus the number of animals picked/collected/received which totals 927. Our adoption procedures are very simple. We need people to be committed for at least 10 years or more. We need your time, space and be prepared (financially) to maintain the animal while in your care. Be sure that you promise to neuter (compulsory for females when she comes of age). Meet our paw friends below with their forever home masters.|
|CSR DAY at Dell|
20th June was Charity Day at Dell. SPCA was in their hearts. We thank the Technical Support Team for helping to man the sale of SPCA merchandise in their office. A total of RM1,812 has been raised from the sale of merchandise. On 22nd June, they also (25 of them) arranged to paint the kennels, plus interacting and socializing with the animals at the shelter. We hope they enjoyed working with the SPCA in the interest of animal welfare.
Year 7 Uplands Day at SPCA|
On 27th June morning, a group of 22 Year 7 students (Uplanders) and a teacher visited SPCA to present a cheque for RM1,434. This was the result of their hard work of planning and organizing to raise funds for the animals at the shelter. They also brought along with them some recycled items. They had a fun time socializing with the cats and dogs at the shelter. We appreciate their kind gesture and efforts put in for the benefit of animal welfare.
Universiti Putra Malaysia DVM 1 Students|
10 UPM DVM 1 Students chose SPCA Penang as their Off Campus Training to perform their 'seeing practice' at animal shelter facilities from 24th June till 7th July. Here, they are shown how the shelter operates. This will allow them to gain some initial exposure to veterinary animal shelter practice, care and management of animal shelter. At the same time, they will be expected to have 'hands on' experience so as to gain some basic skills in animal shelter practice.
