Animal shelter hit by flood, appeals for donations

Date:

KUCHING: The heavy downpour on Monday (July 12) afternoon resulted in flash flood which has affected animals at the Sarawak Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA) shelter at 7th Mile here.

SSPCA president Datin Dona Drury-Wee said the water level was waist-deep.

“Fortunately, the flood subsided quickly as the rain stopped. However, there were two dog casualties,” she said in a Facebook post on Monday (July 12).

She said the shelter’s new freezers, rice pots and fridges were also lifted by the flood water even though they have been raised on hollow bricks.

“We are appealing for donations, in cash and in kind again. Newspapers and towels are needed,” she said.

Dona added that the animals’ food supply is safe from being washed away by the flood as it has been stored upstairs.

Sometime in January and February this year, the shelter also experienced flood.

Those who wish to help can make a cash donation to SSPCA’s CIMB account (8005274525).
