It really saddens us each time dogs /cats come to the shelter in such a bad condition.  One could go wild and imagine "how could the owner do that"? Look at this white husky dog.  She was probably cute and had the look of being white as cotton to melt the hearts of its owners  when she was a puppy.  This husky dog has now been adopted and taken care of.



Another episode and we cannot understand why this puppy has to be dumped outside our gate in this manner especially in broad daylight. Check the cctv video here

For safety and security reasons, our entrance gate is always closed.  All one needs to do is to press the bell for attention and we will be at the gate to receive during office hours. 

Diwali greetings

To all our Hindu Members, Friends and Supporters, SPCA Penang wishes you a Happy Diwali.


Dog in cage reported on PLUS Highway

SPCA received many phone calls and messages requesting us to look into a cage with a dog with no shelter from the rain and sun along the highway. Should you be travelling down south from Penang and notice this cage with a dog along 264.6km, don’t be alarmed.

As explained by the Customer Service at Plus Highway Sdn. Bhd  a toy/dummy tiger is placed inside the cage as a bait meant to deter wild monkeys and other animals trying to cross  to other side.  This initiative is taken by PLUS Section N5 (Changkat Jering to Ipoh North) to avoid any mishaps and for the safety of highway travellers. 



Animal Adoptions
In October, we had nine dogs and two cats adopted.


New Cattery
Our cats awaiting homes have been moved to their new cattery.  We are happy to note that they are now happily settled.  We invite cat lovers to come and volunteer by spending quality time with our cats while they are waiting for homes.


Volunteer Briefing
Our volunteer briefing in November will be held on the 17th at 9 a.m. sharp.
