SPCA Selangor is an animal welfare organisation based in Ampang Jaya, Selangor. The aim of the SPCA is to protect defenseless animals and to alleviate their suffering. We provide an adoption program, investigation of cruelty reports, humane education, assistance to community animal caregivers and run a dedicated, low-cost spay/neuter clinic. We also lobby the Government and local municipals for humane treatment of animals and harsher penalties for perpetrators of crimes against animals. Founded in 1958, SPCA is a well-respected and trusted Non-Profit Organisation. Over the years, the organisation has gained tremendous goodwill, recognition and support from animal lovers all over Malaysia.
What We Do
- SPCA E.R.A. (Education, Rehabilitation & Adoption) Centre
2013 has seen the closing of a chapter in the evolution of SPCA Selangor, with 50 years of history disappearing under the bulldozers as the old shelter is demolished and the platform laid, for the new SPCA Selangor E.R.A (Education, Rehabilitation & Adoption) Centre. The building contractors moved in on 1st November with the official ground breaking ceremony on 11th November 2013. Thanks to the remarkable efforts made by all of you – members, supporters, volunteers, staff, friends and friends of friends of SPCA Selangor – we found homes for nearly 300 dogs and cats in the last few months before construction began. Members of the public are encouraged to adopt animals from the SPCA. The adoption fee includes de-worming, vaccination and compulsory neutering (sterilization). All potential adopters are interviewed and advised, and should be agreeable to home visits by SPCA Selangor staff. Our temporary centre (located next to the site of the animal shelter) is open to visitor's everyday, 9am to 4pm, including weekends and public holidays. As our new centre is under construction, we are not able to accept surrendered animals for the time being.
SPCA Animal Inspectors investigate complaints relating to animal abuse or neglect everyday, and work closely with the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS) to monitor these cases and assist with confiscation of animals and prosecution. The identities of complainants are kept confidential, to encourage more people to come forward and report such cases.
Our Humane Education Program aims to create awareness, empower and motivate people to be agents of change to improve animal welfare in their communities. Visiting students are given a presentation, education packs and a tour of the shelter. They also can help to clean the animal enclosures and cages and feed, walk, bathe and socialize the animals. SPCA Selangor also actively goes out for outreach work in schools, pet events and shopping centres.
- Klinik Kembiri
KK is a highly-successful high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinic set up by SPCA in collaboration with DBKL. As of December 2013, -28,834 cats and dogs had been neutered, preventing the births of an estimated 20 million animals since its inception in 2003.
- Government Lobbying
SPCA meets regularly with the DVS to lobby for effective animal welfare legislation building more Klinik Kembiris and humane stray animal control and management of Municipal Pounds. SPCA Selangor also actively lobbied and succeeded in keeping the trade-ban on macaques firmly in place, when the government announced plans to export the animals for consumption and bio-medical research overseas. Currently, SPCA is also lobbying for a ban on cat and dog meat consumption in Malaysia.
- Mission HELP: Helping People Help Animals
With this outreach arm, our organisation is working to improve the lives of animals beyond our reach through dedicated animal rescuers – individuals and groups – to promote better welfare for homeless animals. SPCA Selangor provides highly or fully subsidized food, vaccination and spay/neuter costs for Good Samaritans who are caring for stray animals in their communities.
How You Can Help
As an animal welfare organisation, we don't receive any money from the government. We rely on public donations to support our operation. You can choose to make a monthly credit card pledge of RM10 above through annual appeal. You can also help to circulate the brochures by placing them at your office reception counter, on your school bulletin board or mail-outs like newsletters and even greeting cards. This directly raises awareness about SPCA and helps us raise much-needed funds to continue our work. Remember, every bit counts!
