OUTSIDE CAMPUS PRACTICAL TRAINING BY 1ST YEAR UPM VET STUDENTS
We welcome the batches of students who chose SPCA to do their practical training at animal shelters. The students would like to share their experience working with Tabu and Shelley.
Cheah says "I like the way Tabu hugs my leg when I entered her kennel and I believe that she will bring a lot of fun to children".
For Shelley, Wei Yang advises all "Shelley's appearance might not be good looking, but she is the most friendly dog in the shelter. I changed my point of view on stray dogs after I met her, and her companionship made me become energetic when I was doing my practical. If you don't mind her looks and color, then Shelly is definitely your best choice of dog to be adopted. Remember Adopt Don't Buy".

CULTURE SHOCK - VISIT BY A COUPLE WANTING TO KNOW MORE ABOUT KEEPING A PET IN PENANG
A couple who had just arrived from Canada with their pet dog had a culture shock to find pet owners leaving their dogs at a park in Jelutong to walk/roam without leashes on them. Their dog walking on a leash was not welcome but was nearly attacked. What also shocked them was that the faeces of dogs were not picked too after the dogs had done their business. Many strays were also seen at the park with leftover food placed on plastic sheets. Plastic sheets were seen strewn all over after the strays have eaten.
The couple had to be convinced that this is the normal practice of some pet owners who are not able to accept that dogs should be walked on a leash in public areas. As for the food placed at strategic places in the park, it is the practice of kind hearted social carers who placed food for strays. It is also hoped that the park will be kept clean so as not to allow plastic sheets/newspapers strewn all over.
