SSPCA seeks donations to buy food for animals

Date:

KUCHING: Sarawak Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA) needs to raise at least RM5,000 every month to ensure consistent meat supplies for its animals at the shelter.

As such, the society is pleading to the public to lend a helping hand so that it can purchase food supplies for the animals.

SSPCA said it could not supply the food without the support and the help from the public.

“Our 400 residents (animals) consume 70kg of chicken neck and breast meat, and also 10kg of minced beef every day,” the society said in a Facebook post on Saturday (Nov 14).

There are two platforms where public can donate cash to the society. First is by direct transfer to the SSPCA official CIMB bank account number 8005274525.

The public can also donate by using Sarawak e-wallet, Sarawak Pay. They can visit SSCPA’s Facebook page to scan the Sarawak Pay QR code to donate.

“Whatever amount you contribute, it means a lot to us for our furkids to at least get a good meal to maintain their livelihood,” said SSPCA.

Meanwhile, in another posting, SSCPA also urged Sarawakians not to abandon their pets even though they were experiencing hardships during the pandemic.

“There had been an increase in the dumping of animals, not only near our shelter, but many other places too. Many unlucky ones have become strays, roaming around the streets, scavenging for food,” it said.

The society hoped the government would look into the matter and enforce a stricter fine for those who abandoned their pets.

“Abandoning an animal when it is likely to suffer trauma, pain or suffering is considered animal cruelty,” said SSPCA.

For further details on donation and adoption campaign, the public can visit SSCPA’s website at https://www.sspca.sarawak.com.my/.
