SPCA BUILDING EXPANSION FUNDRAISING PROJECT
SPCA has been given on lease by Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang the adjoining land behind our present premises. We need to expand urgently to cater for group visits to the SPCA. As mentioned, our thrust is to educate on RESPONSIBLE PET OWNERSHIP. With this piece of adjoining land of area 4700 sq. feet we intend to build a multi purpose hall for educational activities, a large cattery and a playground for shelter animals. An estimated cost for the construction work is estimated at RM300,000. As such, we need funds. We appeal to all members, supporters, friends and any individuals to support us in this worthy cause. Make it a project of your own to fundraise in whatever manner in your own company, organisation, college, university or business outlet. We are ever willing to co-organise with anyone who would like to fundraise towards this project. Please go our special website page for more information and donation options.
