SPCA Penang Shelter Procedures
Shelter work has never been easy! It stresses staff and volunteers each time an animal is brought in, be it surrendered, abandoned and/or lost. A lot is expected of us by the public when the animal is handed over. Expectations cannot always be met so please allow us to do the best we can once the animal(s) are accepted into our shelter. We are often asked, how long do you keep them? We've heard talk going around that we keep an animal a maximum of 14 days and then the animal is put down - not so. To know more of our shelter procedures, we invite the public to visit us during our kennel visiting hours.
No duration of time is given for any animal that comes in. They will be given their veterinary health check followed by routine deworming, de-ticking and vaccinations etc before proceeding for adoption. Some are fortunate to be adopted and some are still awaiting homes.
Last month alone, we had four elderly abandoned Shih Tzus brought in and one blind poodle was dumped outside our gate entrance. If only the owners could be responsible enough to bring the animal in, not just dump, we would appreciate the action.
Just some of the dogs that have arrived at the shelter recently and we believe to be abandoned by their owners:
